HOUSTON -- Houston police are hoping you can help get another dangerous man off the street before he hurts someone else.

HPD says in December, 27-year-old Marquis Robinson followed a man home from a senior citizen residential community and robbed him.

Detectives say after playing a game of dominos at the Hometown At Wayside apartments, the victim was followed home by three suspects. In his front yard, the man was pistol whipped and pushed to the ground.

The suspects, including Robinson, took $700, his hat and jacket.

To this day, the victim is too scared to show his face and or be identified. He fears the Robinson may come after him again.

Police believe Robinson is a serial robber.

Robison has a lengthy criminal history and was charged with another robbery last year. He never showed up for his court hearing and is still on the run.

I'm not ever going to get over it until the boy is caught, the victim told KHOU 11 News.

Detectives learned the identity of Robinson after interviewing seniors who saw him hanging around. Some were scared of him.

HPD showed the victim his photo in a lineup.

When he brought me the photos, as soon as he opened it I said, This is the guy who did this, the victim said.

Police say Robinson may have hung around the senior residential community on North Wayside Drive because the elderly are easy targets.

Recently, a woman was knocked to the ground and robbed in the parking lot; Houston police believe Robinson may have been involved in that crime too.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for anyone with information on Robinson's whereabouts. Tips can be submitted by phone at 713-22-8477 or online.
