LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Authorities on Wednesday identified one of two men being sought in a series of follow-home armed robberies in the Los Angeles area, including two such crimes in North Hollywood.
Dashawn Dow, 20, was identified as a suspect by the Los Angeles Police Department, which circulated his photo, along with security video of one of the crimes.
"In the past 18 months, Dow has been arrested five times for robbery but was able to post bond following each arrest," an LAPD statement said.
One of the crimes he is suspected of committing occurred on Oct. 2 at about 1:30 p.m. in North Hollywood, police said.
Surveillance video shows a gray Maserati following a male and female victim into the parking structure of their North Hollywood apartment complex, investigators said.
"As the victims exited their vehicle, they were confronted by two armed suspects who demanded the victims' property," police said. "Fearing for their lives, the victims complied with the suspects' demands. The suspects then fled with the victims' money and jewelry."
Another alleged crime occurred shortly after 12 a.m. on Oct. 10.
Two victims, a man and woman, were confronted by two men in the parking structure of the victims' North Hollywood apartment complex, police said. "One of the suspects attempted to remove the victim's watch forcibly from his wrist. When the victim resisted, the other suspect pressed a gun against his chest. Fearing for his life, the victim relinquished his property, and the suspects ran to a waiting getaway vehicle," the LAPD said.
Detectives believe that Dow was involved in both incidents and that he used a firearm in the crimes, police said.
He's also been identified in two additional "follow-home style robberies" that happened in downtown L.A., according to authorities. Dow remains at large and should be considered armed and dangerous.
