Zanesville police are looking for a suspect they say robbed two convenience stores early this morning.

 
Detectives say a white male attempted to rob the Starfire on Pershing Road around 4:20 a.m., but after employees refused his demands, he left the store.
 
A second robbery took place at the Speedway on Blue Avenue at 4:38 a.m. and the man fled with an undisclosed amount of money.
 
Investigators say the man acted like he had a weapon, but no weapon was seen. 
 
The man was wearing a blue hoodie sweatshirt, blue jeans and black and white tennis shoes.
 
Anyone with information is asked to call the Zanesville Police Department at 740-455-0700.
