Abilene police ask for help in identifying armed robber


ABILENE, Texas - Abilene police are asking for help in identifying a suspect who robbed a 7-11 convenience store in the 5100 block of Highway 277 -- near FM 707 -- on April 12.

The robbery occurred about 2:30 a.m. You can see in the surveillance video, the suspect entered the store wearing a hoodie and a red bandana. He approached the clerk with what appears to a weapon in his right hand. The clerk then grabbed a brown paper bag from under the counter and filled it with money from the cash register.

The suspect then took off. " If you have info, call Abilene Crime Stoppers (325) 676-8477 and earn $$$," Abilene police said in a social media message. KTXS archives show the same store was robbed by two men in May 2015.
