OREM -- The Orem Police Department is asking for help to find a suspect who robbed a woman and a gas station.

Sgt. Craig Martinez said the first robbery happened on Dec. 21. He said a woman was unloading groceries from her car when a man approached her, pulled out a gun and demanded money.

The next night, a man robbed the Walkers gas station on 1520 S. State. Armed with a knife, he approached the clerk and demanded money from the till.

Both robberies happened around 11 p.m.

The suspect in both cases is described as a man in his early 30s, around 6 feet tall and about 250 pounds. He was wearing a black sweater with white strips, blue jeans and a beanie cap.

Witnesses say he had bad complexion and was driving an older, silver 4-door passenger car, possibly a Chevrolet Lumina.

If you recognizes the suspect or suspect vehicle, you are asked to contact the Orem Department of Public Safety at 801-229-7070.
