Rosenberg police release somewhat cryptic sketch of suspect

ROSENBERG, TX (KTRK) -- Rosenberg police are looking for a suspect in an aggravated robbery, and they're hoping you can help. But the sketch they've released will require some imagination on your part.

"We want to get whatever information we have out there to whatever outlets we can. If we have the poteential to get him identified this way why wouldnt we do it?" said Lt. Jeremy Eder with the Rosenberg Police Department.

At about 6:30pm Saturday, a man was taking his daughter out of his vehicle in the parking lot at 3101 Place Apartments, Vista Drive, when he was approached by a white male wearing a black ski mask. The victim described the suspect as wearing a gray and blue button-up, short-sleeve Dodgers baseball jersey, faded blue jeans, and black and red tennis shoes. The suspect demanded money and property, while displayed a long barreled, black revolver.

Eder said, "He said 'I'm sorry, but i have bills to pay."

The suspect fled once the victim surrendered his property. Police pointed out more specifics in the sketch which they hope will help get the suspect identified: wrinkles under his eyes, the shape of his mouth, and facial hair protruding from the mask near his upper lip.

Investigators are looking into all leads, including a similar robbery at Lamar Park Apartments, 1800 FM 1640, Richmond on the same day. The victims in that case reported the suspect as a white male who was wearing a jersey with the number "20" and shorts. The suspect was armed with a pistol and demanded money and property.

The Criminal Investigations Division is asking for the public's help in identifying this suspect. Unfortunately, the description available from the victim leaves little identifying information to go on.

If you are able to recognize the individual in the sketch or have any information, you're asked to contact Det. R. Leonhardt at 832-595-3700, or contact Crime Stoppers at @ 281-342-TIPS (8477). You can remain anonymous.
