Sherman Police are searching for a suspect in connection with the armed robbery that took place at a local business Sunday night.


In an emailed news release sent Monday, the SPD said officers responded to the Dollar General off Sunset Boulevard at approximately 9:50 p.m. Sunday.


“The suspect entered the store and demanded money from the store employees at gunpoint,” the release said. “After receiving money from the employees, the suspect fled the scene on foot. No one was injured during the robbery.”


It wasn’t immediately clear how much money the suspect made off with, but the department said Sunday’s robbery was the second at the Dollar General store on Sunset this month.


No injuries were reported on Dec. 3 when a male suspect entered the business at roughly the same time, brandished a semi-automatic handgun and made off with more than $1,000 in cash. Officers are investigating the possibility that both robberies could be connected and were committed by the same person.


The suspect is described as a thin-built, white male standing approximately five feet, eight inches tall.


Those able to identify the suspect or those with knowledge regarding either robbery are asked to call Sherman Police Detective Hendrickson at 903-892-7322.
