ANAHEIM, CALIF. (Oct. 17, 2018) – The Anaheim Police Department seeks the public’s help in identifying a suspect who committed two armed robberies within 20 minutes.
On Tuesday morning at 3:56 am, the suspect entered Winchell’s Donuts at 901 S. Euclid Street in Anaheim. He produced a silver handgun and demanded money, ultimately fleeing with the cash register drawer. Just 20 minutes later, the same suspect entered Vandy’s Donuts at 1007 N. Euclid Street. He again displayed a silver handgun, demanded money, and fled with the cash register drawer. Nobody was physically hurt in either crime.
The suspect is a male African-American in his 40s-50s, average build, with a thin black goatee. He was wearing black pants, a black hoodie, an orange construction vest, and white Nike shoes. The suspect fled in what is thought to be a dark colored (possibly green) 2000-2003 Mercedes ML350 with paper license plates.
Detectives are looking into the possibility these crimes are related to an additional robbery in Los Angeles County. Anyone with information is urged to contact CrimeStoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS or by email at www.occrimestoppers.org.
