Calgary police are releasing new images of a man they consider a suspect in a series of robberies and sexual assaults in the Montgomery, Chinook and Ogden neighbourhoods in January.

They also believe he was involved in two more robberies in Glendale and Forest Lawn in February.

Just after 5 p.m. on Feb. 26, police said a man entered a personal care business in Glendale demanding money and pointing a handgun at an employee. He left with the cash on foot and was last seen heading north along 37 Street S.W.
