Another convenient store armed robbery in Round Rock

- Round Rock police are investigating an armed robbery at a Wag-A-Bag convenience store off of South Mays Street.

This isn't the first, just two months ago two other convenient stores on that same street were also robbed.

You hear gunfire and see a terrified store clerk - Monday night's robbery at a Wag-A-Bag in Round Rock was all captured on surveillance video. The suspect is then seen walking to the other side of the register with a gun in hand, wearing all black and a green bandana covering his face. You can tell the woman is still in shock but, ultimately opens the register and hands over the cash. It all happens within about a minute.

"I come here on my way to work and after I get my baby from day care and stuff like that. I've never witnessed anything like that, so it puts a big worry on me. I wouldn't want to get into anything like that," said Ebony Penson, lives nearby.

Showing Ebony Penson the video, she had one response.

"I mean, he needs to be caught," said Penson.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, 5'10" to 6'0," weighing between 200 - 220 pounds. The robbery happened at the Wag-A-Bag at 801 S. Mays St. But, this isn't the only convenience store that has been targeted down that same street. FOX 7 reported on two other armed robberies. One on July 27th at the Shop-N-Go at 1717 S. Mays St. and another a few days later at the 7-Eleven at 1801 S. Mays St. Round Rock police believe the suspect in those two cases could be the same. He was carrying a black handgun and reportedly demanded money from the register.

"We don't want any robberies in our city. We pride ourselves as being one of the safest cities in the nation. Anytime there's a crime like this, we take it very seriously," said Rick White, public information officer, Round Rock Police Department.

On August 1st, just two miles away, there was an armed robbery at the 7-Eleven on East Palm Valley Blvd. Police have yet to say if Monday's incident is connected to any of the others.
