DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Police in Dallas are on the hunt for suspects and their vehicle after a series of robberies at four fast food restaurants. The crimes all took place late Wednesday night and into early Thursday morning, starting at about 10:15 p.m. and ending approximately eight hours later.

In the first incident, police said that a Latin man in his 20s drove up to the drive-thru window of a Jack in the Box restaurant, located in the 6000 block of West Davis Street. The suspect pointed a black handgun at the restaurant’s cashier and got away with money from the register.

The next robbery was not until about 3:30 a.m. when, this time, two Latin men in their 20s were able to pull off same stunt at a Burger King location in the 700 block of West Illinois Avenue. Police said that the driver had a beard, and the passenger was wearing a ski mask while pointing a gun.

Just over an hour later, the Jack in the Box location in the 1000 block of South Westmoreland Road was hit by robbers. Police described the suspect as a young, clean shaven Latin man. He was said to be wearing a red shirt with white letters and a black hoodie.

The same suspect then robbed a Burger King restaurant in the 2500 block of West Davis Street.
