Fayetteville police trying to identify robber

Posted December 16, 2010

— The Fayetteville Police Department on Thursday asked for the public's help to identify a man who robbed a woman at gunpoint two weeks ago.

The robbery occurred at about 7:50 p.m. Dec. 5 at the Cash Points automated teller machine at the Cross Point Center, at 5075 Morganton Road, police said. The woman was withdrawing cash from the ATM when she was approached by a stocky man with a blond beard who was wearing a knit hat.

The man was armed with a silver handgun and took the money the woman had just withdrawn, her debit card and the key to her vehicle, police said.

The robber got into a burgundy vehicle, possibly a Ford Taurus, that was missing the front right hubcap, police said. The driver was described as a thin man in his 20s who also was wearing a knit hat.

Anyone who can identify the robber is asked to call Fayetteville police at 910-433-1851 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483- TIPS.

    Oh wait, I'm sure if you ask his Mommy, she will say "but he is a good boy, just down on his luck". The scum is a thief, find him, convict him, and send him to Maricopa County Jail, let Joe have him for a couple of years.

    Wow airbornemonty!!! You should work on your reading comprehension skills so you don't embarrass yourself when you comment. Their were two people involved in the commission of this crime. The robber was stocky with a blond beard. The driver of the car they fled in was thin and appeared to be in his 20s. Each was wearing a knit hat.

    Well, was he thin or was he stocky? There are some desperate people out there & some who make their way by preying on others. Good idea not to depend on the teller, especially @ this time of the year.

    Attention Robbers:

    Either the robber was stocky or he was thin, will someone make up their mind!

    And no, I haven't seen him and yes, I would turn him in and hope that the authorties did their job and not too busy double dipping.
