Garden Grove police are asking for the public's help to locate a man who has robbed seven businesses over a period of 11 days in the city.
The armed robberies began on July 11, with the latest being reported on July 22, according to a Garden Grove Police Department news release.
In each instance, the robber entered the store, handed a n employee a note demanding money, and then showed that person a handgun in his waistband, the release stated.
The man fled each scene on foot, and a vehicle has not been seen.
Six of the businesses were fast food restaurants; a seventh was a CN Wireless store.
