MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Police Department is looking for a man accused of robbing several people on the same day.

According to investigators, a man in a Kansas City Chiefs jersey approached another man who was sitting on the steps of the Villa at Willow Creek apartment complex on June 22. The suspect pointed a handgun at the man and robbed him of his phone, a Samsung 7 Edge, bank card, and various identification cards.

Police said the suspect then walked toward the front gate where he tried to rob another person who was driving into the complex. That person was able to drive away.

The man then got into the front passenger seat of a Green 1997-2001 Chevrolet Extended Cab that was waiting for him at the exit. The vehicle has had repair work done to the driver side and green paint that does not match the rest of the vehicle.

Minutes later, the same man and vehicle were involved in a home invasion on Walter Tree Cove, which is in the same apartment complex.

He didn't stop there, though.

The suspect is believed to have committed two more robberies minutes later on Brandale Street and on Parker Street.

Police said the same man targeted Maria Maradiaga in her driveway.

"The man, he pulled a gun on my boyfriend over here," Maradiaga said.

She speaks very little English but said it was scary.

"He was right here," she said. "'Give me what's in your pockets.' I said it's okay. I was scared."

We know at least two of the victims targeted were from the Hispanic community, and many are still shaken up.

"I was scared," Maradiaga said. "I was scared."

If you know anything about this robbery suspect, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH. He is wanted for four counts of aggravated robbery.
