Police again are appealing for the public’s help in identifying an armed robber who they believe is responsible for as many as four holdups of Hispanic men since September.
The most recent robbery occurred Friday at a house where a construction crew of seven was working on Arrowwood Drive near East Seminary Drive and the South Freeway.
About 8:30 p.m., a worker stepped outside the residence in the 4200 block of Arrowwood Drive where he was confronted by the armed man. The robber forced the worker back inside, where he demanded cellphones and wallets from the other workers there, police said. The robber fired at one worker who said he didn’t have his wallet.
A man of the same description robbed two men Sept. 15 in the 1200 block of Atkins Street. And on Oct. 25, two Hispanic men trying to get a truck out of the mud in the 1100 block of East Butler Street were robbed by the man. The robber shot one man in the leg.
On Nov. 7, three Hispanic men feeding horses near South Riverside Drive and East Arlington Avenue were approached by the man. He took the men’s cell phones and shot one in the leg with a handgun.
The robber is between 5 feet 10 and 6 feet tall, weighs 120 to 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing black sunglasses, a black hoodie pulled over his head and a black baseball cap with a Texas A&M logo.
