FORT WRIGHT - Police think a robbery last month could be related to a string of similar crimes.
The suspect entered Superior Dry Cleaners, 1830 Dixie Highway, more than once Feb. 28, making small talk with the lone female clerk, said Fort Wright Police Detective Michael Knight.
He came back again just before closing time, armed with a semiautomatic pistol, and bound the clerk while he stole an undetermined amount of cash.
The crime resembles a string of robberies that began Nov. 28, Knight said. In some cases, the female clerk was also sexually assaulted, but not during the Fort Wright robbery, he said.
The suspect in each case is described as a white male in his 30s or 40s, approximately 5-feet-6 to 6-feet-tall, with a medium to stocky build, short- to medium-length dark brown hair, distinctive blue eyes and well-spoken.
Police say the suspect could be driving a newer model, four door, maroon Ford Taurus station wagon with Ohio Bicentennial license plates.
Anyone with information is asked to call Fort Wright Police at (859) 331-2191 or Crime Stoppers at (513)352-3040.
