CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — Corpus Christi police are looking for a man who robbed two businesses late Wednesday night.

One of the armed robberies happened around 11:45 p.m. Wednesday at the Burger King restaurant along the Crosstown Expressway near Horne Road.

Investigators said a man was watching employees take out trash from behind the business and squeezed through a hole along a wooden fence and pulled out a gun.

Police say the suspect yelled at employees saying, "Go. Go. Go," and ran through the back door of the business.

The suspect went to the office and took an unknown amount of cash and ran out the back door and through the hole in the wooden fence.

Investigators said the man is described as a Hispanic man, standing 5 feet, six-inches to 5 feet, eight inches tall. The suspect was wearing a black hoodie and was wearing a black camouflage mask.

Investigators said that another business was robbed with the suspect using the same method as the Burger King robbery.

If anyone has any information about the two armed robberies, you're asked to call Crimestoppers at (361)-888-TIPS.
