Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are looking for a man wanted in two robberies in the last month.
Police said Gerico Dontae Alexander is wanted for a November 5th robbery in which the victim was shot and a second robbery at the Circle K on Little Rock Road on October 23.
In the November 5th robbery, the victim told officers that Alexander entered the store and approached him demanding money. An argument ensued and Alexander shot the victim and took money from the business, according to police.
In the Circle K robbery, Alexander entered the store and demanded money. During the robbery the suspect moved the victims into a back storage office and locked them inside before fleeing the scene, police said.
The victims were not injured during that robbery.
Detectives were able to identify Alexander as a suspect in both cases and obtained warrants for his arrest. Alexander should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Alexander is asked to contact the Violent Criminal Apprehension Team at (704) 336-VCAT or call the Crime Stopper’s tip-line at 704-334-1600.
