Police are searching for the suspect in connection to four holdups in under one hour. 

According to police, a man demanded money at a Plainview Burger King around 8:40 p.m. Wednesday. 

The clerk ducked behind the counter and the suspect took off. 

Police say 15 minutes later, the same man hit a Hicksville pizza parlor but was scared off when the owner threatened him with a stapler. 

Moments later the same man hit a Syosset Dunkin' Donuts, but got away with the tip jar, police say. 

The man then demanded cash from a Trader Joe's employee in a Plainview parking lot, but the victim refused. 

Anyone with information can call Nassau Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
