Amarillo police looking for armed robbery suspect

Late Thursday night, Amarillo police officers were dispatched to an armed robbery at a convenience store in the 4200 block of SW 34th Avenue. The victim told officers that a male wearing a black or dark blue hooded sweat shirt, light blue jeans, and very noticeable red Nike tennis shoes pointed what she believed to be a gun wrapped in a blue bandana at her.

The suspect demanded money out of the register and left the store on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. He is believed to have gone south into the neighborhood.

Winesses described the suspect as an unknown race male being about 5’2’’ tall and having an average build. There were no reported injuries reported from this incident.

Anyone with information on this robbery is asked to call the Amarillo Police Department or Amarillo Crime Stoppers at 374-4400. Tips can also be given anonymously online at www.amapolice.org or on the Amarillo Crime Stoppers P3 mobile app.
