Police seek Family Dollar Store robber

Posted: Updated:

Austin police are looking for a man who robbed a Family Dollar Store in east Austin last week.

Police released surveillance photos of the suspect Friday.

Authorities say he hid in the store until it closed for the night. When two employees were locking up, he went up to them, showed a weapon and demanded money. Then he sprayed them with pepper spray or mace and ran off.

He's described as a Hispanic man, about 5'6" with a thin build and short black hair.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police at 512-974-5270.
