MESA, AZ (CBS5) -

Mesa police need help finding a gunman who's held up a Mesa massage parlor three times since December.

In the most recent robbery on July 3, the suspect roughed up a 53-year-old female employee at AG Massage Parlor, 6247 E. Main St., officers said.

The business was targeted two other times - on Dec. 5, 2012 and again on May 24.  

In the robberies, the suspect entered the business and pointed a gun at the counter clerk. The gunman ordered the clerk into the office area, where he demanded cash.

The suspect is described as in his early 20s. He's 5'8" tall and weighs between 160 to 165 pounds. He was unshaven and has short brown hair.

In the first robbery, the gunman wore a light-gray hooded jacket, stocking cap and large black sunglasses. In the second robbery, he was wearing a light-blue T-shirt, navy pants, eyeglasses and a light-colored baseball hat with a "Bass Pro Shop" logo on front. 

In the third robbery, the suspect wore a dark-colored baseball hat with the same logo "Bass Pro Shop" on front. He wore sunglasses, a black T-shirt and blue jeans. 

People with any information about the suspect are asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (480-948-6377) or 480-TESTIGO.
