Detectives believe same suspect committed three separate overnight robberies.

 At about 7:53 pm, Thursday evening, Patrol Officers responded to a house in the 900 block of Goliad to a reported robbery of an individual.  The 38-year-old resident told officers that a man approached him in the front yard of his home.  The man produced a handgun and demanded money. The victim complied and the robber fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash.  The victim did not suffer physical injury during this robbery.

At about 9:16 pm, Thursday evening, Patrol Officers responded to a similar robbery that occurred in front of a business in the 1100 block of Avenue C.  In that case, a 25-year-old male reported that a man approached him as he exited the business.  The man produced a handgun and demanded money and the keys to the victim’s vehicle.  The victim complied and the robber fled with an undetermined amount of cash, the victim’s cell phone, and the victim’s Nissan pick-up truck.  The victim did not suffer physical injury during this robbery.

At about 5:38 am, Friday morning, Patrol Officers responded to another similar robbery that occurred in front of a business located in the 1800 block of College St.  In that case, a 25-year-old male reported that a man approached him as he exited the business.  The man produced a handgun and demanded money.  The victim complied and the robber fled in a Nissan pick-up truck.  The victim did not suffer physical injury during this robbery.  A responding officer located the Nissan truck in the parking lot of a business located in the 2500 block of Fourth Street.  There was a man near the vehicle that matched the description of the robbery suspect.  The officer attempted to detain the suspect but the suspect was able to escape on foot.  Patrol Officers and K9 officers conducted an exhaustive search for the suspect but were not able to locate him.  The Nissan at the scene was the same vehicle stolen during the earlier robbery of the man in the 1100 block of Avenue C.

All three victims described the suspect as a white male, or Hispanic male with a very light complexion.  He is about 5’5” – 5’07”, with a medium build.  He has short light brown hair with a receding hairline.  He is clean-shaven.
