Police on Long Island are looking for an armed, masked man who has robbed multiple Subway restaurants, along with a KFC and several gas stations, in recent weeks.

The suspect struck twice on Tuesday night, holding up a KFC in Shirley and a Best Express in Lake Ronkonkoma, according to Suffolk County police.

In each case, the gunman has made off with cash, from a few hundred dollars to as much as $1,000. No one has been hurt.

Suffolk County Police Detective Edward Reilly says the gunman acts alone; he enters the store and demands cash at gunpoint before fleeing on foot.

In all, he's believed to be responsible for 16 armed robberies since December. Six of those were Subway sandwich shops.
