Police are looking for a suspect wanted for four gunpoint robberies in Queens.

A man who held up a Sunoco Gas Station in East Elmhurst last month is also wanted in connection to three additional robberies in Queens, police said.

Law enforcement sources said the suspect, who took $30 in cash from the station in February, robbed three other gas stations within a span of two days this week.

On March 5, at approximately 3:00 p.m., a 43-year-old male employee was pumping gas for the suspect at a Gulf Gas Station at 111-06 Van Wyck Expressway in South Ozone Park. The suspect got out of his car, displayed a gun and demanded money. The employee gave him $40 in cash and the suspect fled the scene.

On the same day, at approximately 11:20 p.m. the suspect entered a Gulf Gas Station at 153-28 Rockaway Boulevard in Jamaica. He approached a 64-year-old male employee, took out a gun and demanded money. The suspect took $350 in cash from the register, the employee’s cell phone and $100 from him.

On March 6, the suspect followed a 54-year-old male employee into his kiosk at a Long Island City gas station at 50-35 Northern Blvd. He again displayed a firearm and demanded money. He took $300 from the cash register and fled the scene.
