McAllen police are also asking for your help in locating a suspect who may be linked to two aggravated robberies of communication stores.
Police say an armed suspect entered the store on South 23rd street back on January 19th and demanded money. Police say this suspect may be the same man that held up the Pocket wireless store on 10th street over the weekend. In both cases, the robber is thought to be a Hispanic man, about 18 to 20 years-old, dark complected, and about five feet six inches tall. Police say he was wearing a gray hooded sweater and dark glasses during the aggravated robberies. He was seen driving off from the Pocket store in a four door passenger vehicle which had dull paint, a front left hubcap missing, and a tapped right rear passenger window.
