In each incident, the suspect has displayed a knife and taken money from the cash register, Meriden Police Sgt. Michael Boothroyd said in a statement Wednesday. In Wallingford, the man is a suspect in two incidents. The first incident occurred on Oct. 4 at 305 Main St. and the second was on Oct. 10 at 1195 N. Colony Road, police said.

No injuries have been reported in any of the incidents, Boothroyd said.

The suspect has a distinctive tattoo on his left hand. Police released an image of a man they said is a person of interest in the investigation.
