Police are looking for a man suspected in a string of robberies at Bronx cell phone stores, the NYPD says.

The man struck three times in the last few weeks, robbing two cell phone stores in Claremont.

He robbed a Boost Mobile store twice in that span. Both times, he brandished a gun and demanded cash from a clerk. In all, about $5,060 was stolen from the store.

The suspect also hit a Simple Mobile store. In that robbery, he pulled out a gun and punched a store clerk in the face before stealing $1,400.

If you know anything about the robberies, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-8477 or www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
