Other than that, it's been difficult for police to get a more complete description of the man responsible for an estimated 23 armed robberies around the metro area. The robber general targets small businesses, like Subway and Quiznos restaurants.

Police say because the bandit usually wears a mask and gloves, it's hard to get a good look at him. Witnesses are also rattled after the robberies.

"These people have had a - that are providing this description - have had a gun pointed at them. It's a very scary, traumatic incident, and one's judgment isn't always the best when it comes to giving a description of the suspect afterwards," Aurora Police Officer Frank Fania said.

The reward for the 32 Bandit's capture has increased to $12,000. If you have information, call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867). You can remain anonymous.
