Richardson police are asking for the public to help identify a man suspected of robbing a Metro PCS at gunpoint last week. 

The suspect, who also may be responsible for nine other aggravated robberies in North Texas since June, walked into a Metro PCS at 1101 N. Jupiter Road at 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 12. 

He had a brief conversation with an employee then pulled a black pistol and ordered the staff to put money in a small cloth bag. Before leaving, he ordered the employees to the back of the store, said Richardson Police Department spokesman Sgt. Kevin Perlich.

A surveillance camera captured the incident. The man is about 30-years-old and stands 5’6’’ tall, Perlich said in a release. He weighs between 160 and 170 pounds and has a medium complexion with acne scarring. 

At the time of the robbery, the man had a thin goatee and moustache. He wore black-framed glasses, a black thermal top, blue jeans and dark athletic shoes with a baseball cap that said “Navy.” 

If you can help police identify the man, call Richardson police at 972.744.4801.
