The FBI and city police have released a pair of surveillance videos taken days apart at local Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts chains in hopes of catching a serial armed robber.
In the first, taken Feb. 7 at the Dunkin’ Donuts on E. Monument Street, just east of Johns Hopkins Hospital, the man jumps the counter, flashes a gun and demands an employee hand over money from the register. However, he flees after two customers come in, according to police.
The second shows him on Feb. 11, robbing the Subway on Eastern Avenue in Highlandtown. In the footage, he again flashes a handgun at the employee and collects cash placed into a plastic bag, also stealing some cookies from a tray in the process.
These are just two of nine attempted and completed robberies that happened between Jan. 23 and Feb. 11, according to a release from the Baltimore Police Department. Seven of the incidents happened at Subway franchises, two at Dunkin’ Donuts.
The man is shown on both videos carrying a black messenger bag. Authorities say he’s black, aged 40-50 years old, around 5-feet-10-inches tall and weighing 180 lbs, with “large bags under [his] eyes” and “severely chapped lips.”
Tipsters are asked to call Citywide Robbery Unit detectives at 410-366-6341, the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force at 410-265-8080 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
Here are the videos, for reference:
