RICHLAND HILLS (CBSDFW.COM) – Richland Police are searching for a robber who has hit two ATMs in just eight days. Police believe the same man is behind both crimes.
Police say the suspect most recently attacked a man at a Wells Fargo ATM last Thursday night. It happened about 9:25 p.m. in the 6900 block of Boulevard 26. Police say the suspect showed a handgun as he approached the victim’s car. The suspect hit the victim with the gun, but the victim managed to push him away and drive off with only minor injuries.
Eight days earlier, police believe the same suspect approached a victim at a walkup ATM. The victim was hit with the handgun and robbed at a Chase Bank ATM, located in the 7000 block of Boulevard 26. The robbery happened just a few blocks away from the second attempt, and around the same time of evening. In this case, the victim suffered more serious injuries.
Police say the suspect is a black male with a large build, weighing about 180-200 lbs. He is described as 5’10”-6’0” tall, and wore the same cold weather cap with attached fur ear covers in both incidents. The hat is red/black checkered or plaid print. The suspect also wore a red jacket or hoodie and has been seen driving a white/light colored sedan. A black or Hispanic woman was seen riding in the vehicle.
Surveillance cameras captured pictures of the suspect and his vehicle. Anyone with information on the attempted robbery and robbery is asked to call Richland Hills Police at 817-616-3780.
