BLYTHEVILLE, AR (WMC) -

Police are looking for a man accused of robbing two older women at different Arkansas Walmart stores.

The first reported robbery happened in Forrest City on Saturday around 5 p.m.

The victim said she was loading groceries into her vehicle when the man approached her with a butcher’s knife and robbed her.

Police said the man got into a vehicle and drove off.

Blytheville Police Department said a man then entered Walmart on Sunday at 7 a.m. when he approached an 87-year-old woman, knocked her to the ground, and took her purse. The woman was taken to the hospital with an injury to her hip.

A witness said the man drove off before officers arrived. The man is driving a vehicle with Texas tags.

Police believe the two robberies were carried out by the same man driving the same vehicle.

Detectives said the man continued north on I-55 after the second robbery.
