Police are asking for the public's help in finding a robbery suspect.

According to authorizes, 24-year-old Demanuel Lawton was involved in a robbery pattern.

Police tell News 12 he allegedly tricked his victims with a dating app.

In five of the six incidents, which happened between December and January, the suspects lured their victims with the hopes of meeting a woman.

The victims were instead confronted by two or three men.

So far, two suspects have been arrested and charged in connection to the incidents.

Police are now looking to speak with Lawton.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stopper a 1-800-577-TIPS.
