HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu police are looking for suspects involved in three separate armed robberies that took place within days of each other.

The latest robbery, on Jan. 25, occurred at the Longs Drug Store on Fort Weaver Road in Ewa Beach. Police said at about 2:40 a.m., a male -- dressed in a white hooded sweatshirt, long jeans, tennis shoes, black gloves and a bandana on his face -- pulled out a handgun and demanded money from the cashier. The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene in an unknown direction.

On Jan. 23, three males entered a business on Mokauea Street in Kalihi at approximately 5:30 a.m. and stole property from the store counter, police said. They also fled in an unknown direction. All three suspects were wearing hooded sweatshirts and black gloves; two wore bandanas to cover their mouths and one was carrying a handgun, according to police.

Police are also looking for a male who robbed a 7-Eleven store in Waikiki on Jan. 21. At approximately 2:35 a.m., the male -- wearing an aloha shirt, long jean shorts, a hat and tennis shoes -- walked into the store, approached the cashier and demanded money. He stole items without paying and fled.
