Police are hunting an armed robber who struck at seven liquor stores in Perth's northern suburbs.
Police believe the same man was involved in seven robberies that took place between November and February.
On Tuesday, November 13 at about 7.40pm, a man entered the Craigie Tavern, threatening staff with a knife and forcing them to lie on the floor.
He fled on foot with cash.
This same behaviour was repeated at the Edgewater Liquor Store on November 21 at 7.35pm and on December 24 at 8.10pm.
On December 28 at about 9.35pm two offenders armed with knives entered the BWS Liquor Store at the Greenwood Tavern and demanded cash.
They then threatened patrons and demanded they hand over personal belongings, before fleeing the scene in a dark-coloured sedan.
On Saturday, February 2, just after 8pm a man armed with a knife entered the BWS Liquor Store in Kallaroo, demanded cash and forced staff to lie on the floor then fled the scene in a small, red vehicle.
The last two reported robberies were at 8.15pm on Saturday, February 16 at the BWS Liquor Store in Hocking and 7.55pm on Tuesday, February 26 at the Liquor Barons in Ocean Reef.
These last two offences followed the familiar pattern of a man armed with a knife threatening staff, forcing them to lie on the floor then fleeing on foot with a quantity of cash.
In each of the seven robberies, the offenders' identity was hidden by a beanie or piece of shirt material.Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
