THE BRONX - Police are looking for the armed robber who allegedly held up at least two cellphone stores on Webster Avenue in Morrisania.

The most recent robbery was on Friday afternoon at Simple Mobile. An employee says the armed suspect punched him in the face, then demanded money from the register. Employees say the same suspect held up a nearby Boost Mobile store three weeks ago.

Both mobile stores have installed additional security cameras and are working with police to catch the suspect.

The suspect has been described as a black male in his early 20s with a medium build and a goatee.
