Authorities are searching for a man who used a chrome revolver in two separate armed robberies Thursday night.

Shortly after 9 p.m. on April 24, San Bernardino County Sheriff's
Department deputies responded to an armed robbery call near Lime Street
Elementary School. Two victims reported two Hispanic males, a juvenile
and an adult, had approached them. The adult man pointed a chrome
revolver at them, and demanded their money. The victims gave the pair
their wallets and a camcorder. The pair fled on foot.

Forty minutes later, deputies responded to another armed robbery
report, this one near the intersection of 1st and Sequoia Avenues.
There, the victim reported that he was walking southbound on First
Avenue, near the intersection with Sycamore Street, when a pair of
Hispanic males, a juvenile and adult, approached him. The adult pointed
a chrome revolver at him, and demanded his money and his cellular
telephone. The pair left northbound on First Avenue.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, bald, 140 lbs., 5'6",
wearing a black sweatshirt and blue jeans. A Hispanic male juvenile
apparently about 13 years old, accompanied him.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Hesperia station at 947-1500 or the anonymous WE-TIP line at (800) 782-7463.
