VALPARAISO — A man suspected in three previous armed robberies in Valparaiso targeted the Save gas station Wednesday, police said.

The store clerk told police a man with a dark complexion, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds, showed a semi-automatic handgun while demanding cash. The robber wore the same clothing as the previous crimes — a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt with a diamond or star on it, dark-colored pants, white shoes and a mask and gloves, police said.
