Cicero police are searching for a suspect who is believed to be behind three armed robberies in recent weeks of T-Mobile store outlets, including one this past Wednesday in the west suburb.

T-Mobile is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the man caught on video Monday robbing the mobile phone store.

The robbery took place at 3036 S. Cicero Avenue in Cicero. Two prior robberies took place on Dec. 19 and Jan. 23. The suspect is described as 6' 2", about 210-220 pounds. He wears a hoodie, dressed usually in dark blue jeans, black jacket and black shoes. The backpack he wears is black and has a graphic design on it.

The suspect is believed to be working with an accomplice. He has forced employees to open their safes at gunpoint and then puts the money in the backpack before fleeing the stores.
