Dubbed the “Silver Revolver Bandit,” Ray Daniel Morgan, is believed to be responsible for one robbery, two attempted robberies and a carjacking in Riverside, Riverside Police Detective Karla Corbett told KTLA.

In one of the attempted robberies on Dec. 5, the suspect assaulted and shot a clerk in the arm at a Circle K store in the 5700 block of Sycamore Canyon Boulevard after the clerk was unable to get the register open.

The gunman punched the victim, causing a facial fracture, then opened fire as he fled the store.

The victim, a man in his 40s, was taken to a hospital with an injury that was not believed to be life-threatening.

The weapon, a silver revolver, has not been recovered.

Morgan was identified on Dec. 10 and was arrested the next day on suspicion of robbery, carjacking and assault with a deadly weapon.

He is being held on $1 million bail.

Morgan was also apparently wanted in two robberies that occurred in Moreno Valley, Corbett said, without elaborating on those cases.
