Help Us Identify This Robbery Suspect
On May 30th, 2018 at approximately 6:00 p.m., Cedar Park
Police Officers responded to a report of an Aggravated Robbery where the victim
was followed from Chase Bank at 1485 Cypress Creek Road to a nearby apartment
complex at 1600 S Lakeline Blvd. As the
victim was walking from his vehicle to an apartment, he was hit in the back of
the head and knocked to the ground. The
suspect continued to hit him in the abdomen before grabbing an envelope with
$500.00 cash from his pocket. The
suspect then got into a black vehicle and left the area. Review of apartment surveillance showed that
the suspect vehicle may be a Honda Civic with paper plates.
The victim is a 68-year-old Vietnam Vet and was at the
apartment complex helping a friend move. He was medically treated and is
recovering from injuries.
The victim described the suspect as a black male, approximately
30 years of age, around 6 feet tall and roughly 170 pounds. A sketch of the suspect is attached. The victim said there may have been another
black male in the vehicle but was unable to provide further details.

We want to take this time to remind residents of the danger of "jugging" — a crime that
occurs when criminals follow people exiting banks in order to rob them.
Please be aware of your surroundings, conceal any cash
before leaving a bank, do not hide cash in your car and watch for people
following you. If you suspect you are being targeted, call 9-1-1 so a
dispatcher can pinpoint your location and respond accordingly.
