Toot Sweets bakery at 1277 Gilman St. was robbed twice by the same person Oct. 11 and 12, according to Berkeley police. 

Lt. Russell Lopes said that a black male, about 5 feet 10 inches, weighing about 200 pounds., wearing a dark hat, a dark coat, black sunglasses and baggy blue jeans, entered the store Wednesday around 10 a.m. and handed the cashier a note demanding money. 

Lopes said that the man simulated a gun by holding a stick under his coat. 

The cashier handed him an undisclosed amount of money and the man escaped. 

The very next day, the same man entered the store around 11 a.m. and handed the cashier a note demanding money. This time he did not simulate a gun. 

Lopes said that the cashier again gave the man an undisclosed amount of money and the man, once again, escaped. 

Lopes said that there are no suspects at this time.
