AURORA | Aurora police are looking for a man investigators say has recently committed at least six armed robberies along East Colfax Avenue.

In each robbery, the man police are seeking has brandished a firearm and “violently attacked females” as they’ve gotten out of their vehicles, according to an Aurora Police Department Facebook post published Thursday.

In surveillance video screenshots, the suspect is standing in what appears to be a convenience store wearing a dark jacket over a black hooded sweatshirt and at least one hat. He is pictured carrying a backpack, which police say he is “known to carry around.”

The man is described as a black male in his early 20s with a thin build. He is about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and has a mole on the right side of his face near the bridge of his nose.

Police did not provide details regarding when or where the armed robberies took place.
