Fayetteville police are searching for the man responsible for robbing several businesses in town.

On Sunday, police responded to a robbery at the Metro PCS in the 2000 block of Owen Drive.

An investigation revealed that the man walked into the business and approached the employee at the counter, displaying a handgun and demanding that the employee give him money.
