CHATTANOOGA, TN. (WRCB) -- This week, Crime Stoppers features a guy who pulled a revolver in the commission of a robbery. We need your help getting him off the street, because the next time he strikes, he may use that gun and someone could get hurt.
"Anyone that's not afraid to carry a gun and actually go and threaten someone's life," said Chattanooga Police Officer Daniel Jones, "there's always that potential there."
Cut to just before 7:00 on Thursday evening, October 25th. The dinner rush at the 23rd street Hardee's restaurant has come and gone. Enter: our villain.
"You can see him case the parking lot a couple of times with his vehicle," explained Off. Jones. "It looks like he's driving a dark SUV with, it looks like, a silver 2-tone down at the bottom of the vehicle."
He eventually parked at the back. A surveillance camera gives us a good look at him as he enters, adjusting a bandana he has pulled over his face. Another shows the terrifying moments as he storms the clerk, pulls the revolver, and points it at her face.
This is where we can get a full description. He is a black male with shoulder length braids, he is wearing a red hoodie and looks to be about 6-feet tall with a medium build. "There's something that someone will notice about him, Jones said. "Either by the way he walks, the way he jogs in, or the way he jogs out and runs out of the business."
He ran back out, back to that same 2-tone SUV and away from the scene. "Hopefully, someone will notice about the vehicle that he's in," said Jones. "That's what we're looking for."
Help us round him up before someone gets hurt, or worse. No one will ever know it was you who provided the tip and up to a thousand dollars is waiting, no questions asked. Call Crime Stoppers at: (423) 698-3333
