The Austin Police Department’s Robbery Unit is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a suspect believed to be responsible for two Aggravated Robbery incidents. These incidents occurred at Wendy’s in Hancock Center (1000 E 41st St) and the McDonald’s at Capital Plaza (5355 N I35) between the hours of 5 and 7 pm on December 23, 2011. In both incidents, the victim was violently assaulted.
The suspect is described as:
White Male in his mid to late 20’s
Blond or brown short hair
The suspect was last seen wearing a white straw cowboy hat, eye glasses, dark colored hooded sweatshirt, denim blue jacket, blue knee length shorts, and dark colored sandals. The victims were targeted while they were in the men’s restrooms of these establishments.
Update: Police have reason to believe there may be more victims who have not contacted police and that the suspect was planning to continue his pattern of robberies after the second robbery occurred. Anyone with any information in regards to other victims or the suspect’s identity is asked to call the APD Robbery at the tip line at 974-5092.
