MUSKEGON, Mich. - Police are investigating a possible "serial armed robber" in the Muskegon area.

As many as six businesses have been robbed in the past few days.  At least two of those robberies happened in Norton Shores.

Store surveillance video from Seaway Liquors on Summit show the suspect walk up to the counter, point a gun at the clerk and demand cash. The clerk handed over the undisclosed amount of cash and the suspect quickly left.  Another robbery happened across the street from the store at a hotel.  A similarly described person pulled a gun on the hotel clerk.  The clerk was so shaken up by the robbery, she couldn't call 911.

Anyone with information should contact Muskegon authorities.
