Virginia Beach, Va. - Back in June, police say a man walked into a CVS Pharmacy and robbed them at gunpoint then again in September.

It was a different location but the same disguise.

Although his face his hidden under a red bandana, police believe someone could still identify the man based on his clothing and distinctive build.

He is described to be very tall, somewhere between 6'3" and 6'7" and between 175 to 180 pounds.

Witnesses told police they believe he's 20 to 30 years old.

The first robbery happened at the CVS on Indian River Road near Providence.

Police say he was armed with a silver revolver. He went into the store and demanded prescription medication.

Three months later, he hit a CVS on Rosemont Road, implied that he had a weapon that time and made off with more prescription meds.

“We do not know what his intent for that prescription medication is. Is he abusing the prescription medication or is he turning around and selling that prescription medication to further maybe a different type of drug addiction? We do not know, therefore, we want the public to be very cautious, even if they know him, to approach him at any time, we just want them to provide us with that information,” said Det. C.M. Wilson.

Both robberies took place at the same time of day, at four in the morning and he was seen in a dark colored SUV.

Police say they need help identifying who he is before it happens again.
