LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock police are looking into three weekend robberies that might be connected.

The first happened just before 12:30 a.m. outside the Red Roof Inn on I-27

A victim told police that a man approached him, acted like he had a weapon and demanded money.

The suspect then fled the area.

About 45 minutes later, a man matching the suspect's description went into the 7-11 in the 2900 block of 4th Street

He demanded money from the clerk and simulated that he was hiding a gun in his coat pocket.

In both robberies the suspect was a black male, about 40 years old around 6 feet tall wearing a blue jacket with a hood.

In the first hold-up the victim told police the suspect spoke with a lisp.

This comes after a robbery at the Valero at 3311 Avenue Q around 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

Police say a black male wearing a hoodie, sweat pants and a trench coat entered the store demanding money.

Once again, the suspect, who was about 6 feet tall, did not display a weapon, but acted like he had one in his hoodie pocket.

If you have any information that can help police, please call Crime Line at 741-1000.
