KATY, Texas — Police are looking for a robbery suspect who terrorized employees at four businesses on Friday night.
The thief was captured on surveillance video when he held an employee at the Famous Footwear on the Katy Freeway at gunpoint.
Store manager Jake Hood said the suspect walked in and started asking the clerk odd questions.
“That’s usually our tip off that something is going on,” he said. The suspect then pulled out a gun and demanded cash. The employee followed his orders and emptied the cash register.
“We’re all shaken up,” said Hood. “It’s hard to walk back into a store when you know it was just robbed.”
Employees at a nearby Subway restaurant on Fry Road believe the same suspect held them up as well. He walked in the restaurant Friday night and demanded money at gunpoint.
Famous Footwear is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the robbery suspect.
“The only way to keep somebody like that off the streets is to put him away,” said Hood. “We’re not going to take this lying down.”
