Man wanted for nine rob­beries in two months

Edmonton Journal - - CITY -

City po­lice have re­leased pho­tos of a man they say com­mit­ted nine rob­beries in two months.

Most of the rob­beries hap­pened at fast food restau­rants and gas bars in south­west Ed­mon­ton.

The first rob­bery took place Feb .24. The most re­cent was April 9. The busi­nesses tar­geted were near Eller­slie Road and 111 Street, Sad­dle­back Road, Gate­way Boule­vard and 53 Av­enue, po­lice said.

Po­lice said the rob­beries fit a pat­tern. The sus­pect — de­scribed as a heavy-set Cau­casian or His­panic male, be­tween five-foot-nine and six-foot, aged 30-45 — typ­i­cally en­tered be­tween 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. and ei­ther or­dered food or said he was there to pick up an order. He then bran­dished a weapon and de­manded cash and cig­a­rettes.

He was of­ten wear­ing a dark­coloured ball cap, a blue hoodie, sweat pants and dark shoes. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact the Ed­mon­ton po­lice non­emer­gency line or Crime Stop­pers.

The Ed­mon­ton Po­lice Ser­vice Rob­bery Sec­tion is seek­ing the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance in lo­cat­ing this man, a sus­pect in nine rob­beries.
