RPD Detectives Seek Suspect's Identity in Strong Arm Robbery

The Raleigh Police Department is seeking tips from the public as it works to identify and arrest the suspect seen in the attached surveillance photos.

At approximately 1:30 p.m. on July 1, the suspect committed a strong-arm robbery outside the SunTrust bank at 3620 Six Forks Road and assaulted a 68-year-old male victim during the crime. The victim was approaching the bank to make a deposit for his employer when the robbery occurred.

After committing the crime, the suspect fled on foot to a compact or mid-size SUV that was parked nearby. The SUV was reported to be either silver or champagne in color. Additional suspects are believed to have been in the vehicle, which was last seen traveling north on Six Forks Road.

The suspect is described as a black male with light to medium skin tone. He was said to stand about 6 feet 1 inch tall and was thought to weigh about 250 pounds. The suspect was wearing a blue baseball cap, blue t-shirt, dark colored jean shorts, and black and white sneakers. He had a distinctively long goatee, which can be seen in the photo that shows him in profile.

Anyone with information that might assist detectives working on the case is asked to call Raleigh CrimeStoppers at (919) 834-HELP. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that help solve cases.
