Corpus Christi Police Detectives want your help to identify an individual accused of an Aggravated Robbery and Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, that occurred on March 08, 2017 at approximately 7 a.m. on the 3900 block of Leopard.

An 18-year-old man told Police he was approached by a male who was soliciting money at the Stripes at Lantana and Leopard on March 8, 2017.   The 18-year-old male agreed to transport the suspect to a secondary location to withdraw cash from  an ATM to give to the man.  The 18 year old male told Officers he withdrew and gave the Suspect money, but the suspect displayed a weapon and demanded more money.  The 18-year-old male told Officers he jumped out of the car, and the suspect climbed into the driver’s seat then drove off in the vehicle without the 18-year-old man’s consent.   The 18-year-old male described the male to Police as a black male, about 35-42 years of age, standing 5’06-5’10, weighing between 150-180 pounds, and wore a red in color baseball cap, grey shirt and green shorts at the time of the crime.  Corpus Christi Police Officers recovered the stolen car within the same day of the original crime, but the suspect has not been captured. Detectives would now like help from the public to identify and locate the suspect in this crime.

Detectives have obtained images of the suspect as he approached the 18-year-old man.
