Police believe a serial robber is striking local stores in the Springs area.
Saturday evening, officers responded to an armed robbery at Fillmore Liquor, located on the 800 block of East Fillmore. Witnesses told police that the suspect entered just before 8 p.m. and demanded money from the register. The cashier complied, and the suspect left the premises with an undisclosed amount of money.
The suspect has been described as a white male in his early to mid 20s, wearing dark clothing with a bandana concealing his face. He was armed with a handgun, and left the area on foot.
Both the suspect and his style matched the description of the suspect at two other armed robberies in April. Police say that this suspect is likely behind a robbery at a Circle K on the 2900 block of North Chestnut on April 4, and a robbery on April 23 at a Diamond Shamrock on the 3100 block of Sinton Road. Both times, the suspect demanded money from the clerk while holding a gun, and left the scene on foot.
In addition to providing the same description of the man as that in the Fillmore Liquor and Circle K robberies, witnesses at the Diamond Shamrock also described the man as tall, about 6-foot-2, with a thin build. Police tell 11 News that they have been unable to get any description that might make the suspect stand out, such as tattoos or piercings.
All of these robberies are still under investigation.
UPDATE: The suspect has been arrested and identified as Robert Williams.
