Police investigate armed robbery at Parkdale Mall parking lot

Police in Beaumont are investigating an aggravated robbery that occurred in the Parkdale Mall parking lot outside of Dillard's on May 31, reports Beaumont Police Department Officer Tony Harding.

According to Harding, officers responded to a report of the robbery at about 8:10 p.m. Upon arrival to the scene, they spoke with the victim who described what took place. She told the officers that as she was placing her items into her car, a black male who appeared to be in his late 20’s or early 30’s approached her with a t-shirt pulled over his face. She said he pointed a silver handgun at her, demanded her wallet and snatched her purse from her arm. The unknown suspect then ran to a black, full-sized truck with a wide racing stripe on the roof and tailgate, and fled the area.

Officers are still searching for the suspect or suspects involved. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at (409) 833-TIPS (8477).
