CLIFTON - Police are asking for help to identify an armed serial bandit in Clifton with an unusual style.
The suspect isn't knocking over one place after another. He's hitting the same store, over and over.
The repeat robberies have been happening at a the "24-7 On the Go" convenience store on Lexington Avenue.

Clifton police say the same man has held up the same overnight clerk three times. "It's a relatively safe area," says customer Sherad Williams. "You wouldn't expect that to happen over here."
The suspect was caught on security video in March, the first time the suspect held up the market. He had an accomplice that time. The man and a woman were armed with knives when they came behind the counter and grabbed money from the cash drawer.
The clerk, who asked not to be identified, put up no resistance.
Police and the victim say the man returned to the market alone on June 30 and again on July 4. He left with more cash each time.
The clerk believes the suspect lives nearby, because he has yet to see or hear a getaway car. Investigators say the man appears to be Hispanic, in his 30s and standing close to 6 feet 2 inches tall.
Police are hoping someone recognizes the thief and gives them a call. Neither the clerk nor any customers have been hurt during the robberies.
