SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- After an extensive investigation, Sacramento police believe they have found the man behind a string of robberies in North Sacramento.
Saturday morning police released the mugshot of Keyzshawn Braxton, saying that he was arrested on five counts of robbery.
The arrest happened shortly after reports of an armed robbery in the 3600 block of Northgate Boulevard just after 8:30 p.m. on Friday night, according to police. The suspect was gone when they arrived, but after a sweep of the area they found Braxton on Taylor Street. The 24-year-old was carrying the firearm that was used at during the robber on Northgate Blvd.
This is the fifth robbery that has occurred in the North Sacramento area. Based on the similarities, police believe that Braxton has behind all of them.
Surveillance video from multiple businesses shows the robbery suspect in action. Investigators say he’s hit seven different businesses in North Sacramento in the last two months.
"We are concerned about this suspect committing more crimes and that's why we are asking for the communities help," said Sacramento Police Sgt. Vance Chandler on Friday night.
Before Braxton was arrested, the police department sent out a release saying that a robbery suspect was wanted for six robberies in the 4100 Block of Norwood Avenue and one on the 3700 block of Truxel Road.
“Any armed robbery is a scary thing and most importantly we don't want any more to happen in our city, and we don't want to see anybody get harmed," Chandler said. "This is a prime example of us working together with our community to help make our community safe."
During the robberies the suspect wore a white mask in some cases and then a black mask in others. Officers hoped his black hooded sweatshirt with a large pattern would jog someone's memory.
"Our message to him would be, hey, you know what, this is a city we care about. We are committed to making sure that our community is safe. We don't want you to commit any more crime in our city, so please turn yourself in," Chandler said.
