LOS ANGELES (CBSLA)  — Police say this man is responsible for at least 11 armed robberies since January.

CBS2/KCAL9's Crystal Cruz spoke to a Carl's Jr. worker who has encountered the man. She asked not to have her face or identity shown.

"I was scared," said the woman, "he said 'I'm going to shoot you' and 'I'm going to hit you,"

She says the robber has been to her work three times.
