Three south suburbs are working together to investigate a string of robberies that may have been committed by the same man.The first robbery occurred at bout 3:30 a.m. Thursday a Circle K gas station in Oak Lawn. A surveillance camera captured an image of a man wearing a tan coat and a white shirt that he used to cover the lower part of his face.

About two hours later, a man with a similar description committed another robbery at a Clark gas station in Mokena. A surveillance camera at that gas station took pictures of a man, again wearing a tan coat but also a grey sweatshirt with the number three printed on it. He also wore work gloves

Then, at 12:15 Thursday afternoon, a third robbery was committed at a Citizens Bank in Palos Heights. The bank's surveillance camera captured images with a similar-looking man wearing a ski mask.

In all three robberies, the suspect displayed a knife with a green handle.

Anyone with information should call police.
