He's already hit eight businesses: five in Va. Beach and three in Norfolk.

He looks over a menu, trying to decide what to order. At some point, he pulls a gun and places his order for all the money in the restaurant.

In Norfolk, the robber struck Cal'z Pizza on E. Bayview and Chesapeake Boulevard last Tuesday and Pollard's Chicken on Tidewater Drive.

The same man tried to rob Zero's Wednesday night. He had on the same clothing he wore in the Cal'z robbery.

He robbed five locations in Va. Beach and tried to get money from three others, according to MPO Adam Bernstein.

The suspect is white, 6' tall, weighs 145-165 pounds, has brown wavy or dark blonde hair and is 25-30 years old. He usually wears a red baseball cap and knee-length athletic shorts. He also has a colored tattoo.
