FORT WORTH –– In the waning minutes of July 30, a Hispanic man standing about 5'5'' wearing a bandana over his face walked into the University Food Mart in the 400 block of University Drive and displayed a handgun. The clerk handed over cash and the suspect fled.
Fort Worth police say that same man robbed another three convenience stores over the next 24 hours. He wore a dark gray Nike sweatshirt and a black and white Kings cap with a black bill. Police spokeswoman Sharron Neil said he used a black automatic handgun at each of the robberies.
No one has been injured, nor have police released how much money he made away with.
After the first robbery, he resurfaced at about 1:36 a.m., roughly two hours later. He entered Dukes convenience store at 7345 Boat Club Road and pulled the same stunt, robbing the business in just two minutes, according to a police report.
Next, at 5:20 a.m., he robbed a 7-Eleven in the 3300 block of the busy West 7th Street. A report says a witness also saw this robbery.
The final robbery occurred later that night at 11:24 p.m. Details are scant in the police report, but the clerk gave the suspect money and he ran from the business. The ordeal was over in four minutes.
All the locations are within 25 miles of one another.
Anyone who can help police find this man stands to gain a $1,000 reward. Tipsters are asked to call 817.469.TIPS –– if he's spotted in public, call 911. The man is armed and dangerous.
