A man suspected of robbing a Shaw convenience store at gunpoint has appeared on surveillance footage.

The armed robbery happened in the Dollar Plus at 1541 7th St. NW on Dec. 12, police said.

Video authorities released today in connection with the crime shows a man with a hat walking on a sidewalk in a residential area.

Police last month tweeted this description of the suspect in the robbery:

A man with a gun also robbed the Dollar Plus in November. It isn’t clear whether the two robberies are connected.

Authorities today also distributed a video of a man wanted in a theft in Adams Morgan.

The theft occurred in an unidentified business on the 2400 block of 18th Street NW on Nov. 8, police said.

The footage shows a man with a white shirt that appears to have “SKI67” written on the front and “16” on the back. He is seen walking walking around inside a restaurant and later crouching down and shaking his right hand around.

Anyone who can identify these individuals or who has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at 202-727-9099 or text your tip to the Department’s TEXT TIP LINE at 50411.
