SEATTLE - Police are asking for the public's help to catch a crook dubbed "Bob the Builder" for his construction worker outfit.

Investigators said he's robbed at least six businesses in Seattle in just the last month - including small grocery stores and pharmacies.

"It was a bit bizarre," said Eddie Davis, who works at Pike Grocery that was hit by the bandit two weeks ago. "He's just walking around the store. the way he was dressed. He had full construction gear, painters mask. And when he talked, he had a raspy voice."

In each instance, police said he walked up to the cashier, demanded money and was gone in a matter of minutes.

Employees have told police they didn't see a weapon.

"He put his hand in his pocket and made the gesture he had one," said Davis.

Davis said the man got away with just a small amount of cash from his store.

Police are now reviewing surveillance video from the targeted businesses to try and identify the man. If you recognize the suspect, call Seattle police.
