A bandana wearing man robbed a Havre de Grace sex shop at gunpoint Friday evening, the Harford County Sheriff's office said.

Authorities also said they are investigating whether the same man might be behind armed robberies at a Churchville Subway on Wednesday and a nearby Royal Farms in the early hours of Thursday morning.

In the Friday robbery, an employee of Jacki's Intimate Boutique told deputies that a man entered the store wearing a black bandana covering the lower portion of his face, showed a handgun and demanded money. The employee said she handed over cash from the register, according to the sheriff's office.

There were several other customers in the store but none was approached by the suspect, deputies said.

No one at the store could comment Saturday morning.

The man fled the store and ran west on Pulaski Highway, deputies said. Witnesses said they saw a dark car — either a Toyota Corolla or a Nissan Sentra — driving with its lights off nearby after the robbery, according to officials.

The man is described as a white male age 20 to 25, who weighs 170 to 180 pounds. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and light-colored jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Tammy Burns at 410-836-5043.
