Austin police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man they say robbed an insurance business in North Austin last week.
Police say the robber on Wednesday entered Remco Austin Insurance, at the 8700 block of North Lamar Boulevard, and pointed a small black handgun at an employee demanding money. The robber left with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot, officials said. He was last seen going west on Fairfield Drive.
The employee was not injured, police said.
Police described the robber as a man between the ages of 25 and 35, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall, with a short haircut faded on the sides and a black tattoo on his right forearm. He was last seen wearing a black t-shirt with the letters “OP” on the front, red Champion brand shorts with a logo on the side, white Champion brand slider flip flops, black ankle socks and a black face covering, police said.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Austin police’s robbery tip line at 512-974-5092. Tipsters can also contact Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS or by submitting a tip through its website or its mobile app. Tips may be anonymous and might lead to a reward of up to $1,000.
