GREENSBORO, N.C.-- Greensboro Police are searching for a man who robbed two women at gunpoint early Wednesday morning, just five miles apart.

Police say the suspect may have been loitering in the Church St. area checking out the cars that passed by, looking for potential victims.

"I think it's very likely they were driving around looking at cars, looking at women, following them around seeing who they could grab a hold of," explained Greensboro Police Officer Douglas Campbell.

Around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, the suspect pointed a gun at a woman and robbed her on North Church Street. She was not injured.

Later, around 4:30 a.m., the suspect robbed another woman on Woodside Drive.

The single mom had just left work and was with her two young kids.

"What type of person does this, what type of person? Totally a coward," the woman explained.

The suspect stole her cell phone and her car keys.

Greensboro Police say the suspect is 6'2", with a slender build and was wearing a hat with an "A" on the front at the time of the incidents.

He was last seen driving a dark-colored Lexus.

Anyone with information about suspect is asked to call CrimeStoppers at (336) 373-1000.
