APD looking for four suspects in series of 7-Eleven robberies

The Austin Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying four suspects they say are involved in a series of robberies at three Austin-area 7-Eleven stores this month.

APD says during the first robbery on Oct. 5, the suspects entered the 7-Eleven at 3801 W. Parmer Lane just before 3 a.m. and forced the clerk to the ground. One of them stood with his foot on the clerk’s back while the other suspects worked to pry open an ATM.

The second and third robberies both happened on Oct. 13. During one, the suspects entered the 7-Eleven at 11800 Metric Blvd. just before 4:15 a.m. One appeared to forcibly hold the clerk at the counter while the others move in the direction of the ATM.

Just over an hour later, the suspects entered another 7-Eleven store at 8010 Brodie Ln. One of the suspects made contact with the clerk, who was outside the store at the time, before going inside with the others to tamper with the ATM. In both of these robberies, the suspects were seen fleeing the area on foot.
