A one-man, one-night crime wave.
Henderson police are asking for the public's help to identify a man they believe burglarized five Henderson businesses Sunday night.
The thefts took place at Sunset Pizzeria, Sonic Drive-In, Cueves Market, Baskin Robbins and J. Crimi Eyewear Boutique. The suspect threw rocks through the windows of businesses to gain access.
Surveillance video shows the burglar in action. He wasted no time, first breaking the glass, then violently grabbing the cash register so he could slam it on the ground.
"He was down there picking up coins and stuff. Then he ran out," said Baskin Robbins Franchise Owner Jennifer Holloway.
He was out of the Baskin Robbins in less than minute, taking with him just some petty cash.
"You know he didn't bother any chairs or tables or anything like that. He was very like precision, he just came in, grabbed and ran," said Holloway.
It was a similar story at four other businesses along Boulder Highway, including Sunset Pizzeria, where owner Mike Zakis said the burglar appears to have cut himself and left blood in his store.
"It wasn't a professional job, that's for sure," said Zakis. "He did more damage to himself than he did to us." 
Like at the other places, he did a lot of damage and got very little for his effort.
"He did all, like a thousand dollars worth of damage and to get 60 bucks, I would have gave him 60 bucks not to break the window," explained Zakis.
The person wanted for questioning is described as a Hispanic adult male with a shaved head. He is around 5 feet 5 inches tall and was last seen wearing dark clothing.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Henderson Police Department, 3-1-1, or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 to remain anonymous.
