Irving, Texas, August 20 – The Irving Police Department is currently investigating an aggravated robbery that occurred at 9:50 a.m., Aug. 13, in the 1300 block of N. Belt Line Rd. The below pictured suspect entered the business with a dark colored bandana covering his face and pointed a revolver at the clerks while demanding money. The business has ballistic glass and other security features; therefore, the clerks hid behind the counter and did not acknowledge the suspect. Once the suspect recognized that he could not get to the clerks, he tried pointing the gun through one of the small openings in the window. When that did not work, he eventually realized that there was no way to get to the clerks or the money so he ran away. As he was leaving the business, he removed the bandana allowing a surveillance camera to obtain the below photo.
If you recognize the male, please contact the Irving Police Department at 972-273-1010. Please do not approach or contact the suspect. A video of the attempted robbery can be viewed at: https://www.facebook.com/IrvingPD#!/photo.php?v=211115485717900
