VIDEO: Thief robs Mesquite restaurant at gunpoint

Posted: Updated:

Mesquite police need help to find a gunman who robbed a fast-food restaurant before dawn last week.

Lt. Bill Hedgpeth with the Mesquite police department says the suspect stormed into the Carl's Jr. in the 2100 block of Galloway at 6 a.m. Monday, Sept. 17.

He wore a dark blue bandanna over his face and brandished a pistol as he herded one employee into a back room walk-in cooler.

Then he made another worker open two cash registers and put the money in a bank bag. The suspect can be seen on video holding the gun to her head several times.

After emptying the registers, the gunman opened the door to a different walk-in cooler and pistol whipped the back of the worker's head as she goes inside.

Lt. Hedgpeth says the suspect was about 6 feet 2 inches, weighs 180 pounds and wore a purple fleece jacket, black windpants and white tennis shoes.

If you know anything about this crime, please call Mesquite police at 972-285-6336.
