Surry County deputies have identified a man wanted in connection with two convenience store robberies about an hour apart, as well as on a count of second-degree kidnapping.

Randall James Cave, 34, of Dobson, is suspected of robbing two Circle Ks on Graceland Lane and Redbrush Road Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

The Graceland Lane Circle K robbery took place around 10:50 p.m. The suspect was given an undisclosed amount of money and then forced the clerk to lie on the floor, deputies said.

Then around 12:15 a.m., a suspect with the same description entered the Redbrush Road store, deputies said. The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money from that store as well, but did not force anyone to the ground, deputies said.

Around 5 a.m., a man fitting the same description had offered to take a woman to a mechanic after her car broke down at Brindle's Truck Stop, deputies said.

The suspect eventually took a detour onto an isolated road, and he and the woman got into a struggle after she objected to the detour, deputies said.

The woman fought her way out of the car, but the suspect left with the victim's purse and cell phone, deputies said.

Cave is wanted on three counts of common law robbery, three counts of felony possession of stolen goods, one count of second-degree kidnapping and one count of assault of a female.

Deputies said Cave may be driving a small pickup truck, possibly a Nissan, that is dark in color.

Anyone with information on Cave's whereabouts is asked to call the Surry County Sheriff's Office at (336) 401-8900.
