Temple Police investigating two separate robberies

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

Temple Police are investigating two separate robberies that took place Wednesday morning.

The first robbery took place just after 8 a.m. Wednesday morning at Mazzio's Pizza Restaurant, located in the 1400 block of Southwest HK Dodgen Loop.

Police arrived on the scene and were told that a man had entered the restaurant as employees were preparing to open the business. The man displayed a handgun and demanded money.

The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing on foot in an unknown direction.

The suspect is described as a black male who is about 6-feet-tall. He was last seen wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. The victim says the suspect was wearing a mask that covered the lower part of his face and cotton style work gloves.

The second robbery occurred just after 8:30 a.m. at The Great Western Inn, located in the 400 block of Southwest HK Dodgen Loop. Employees told officers that 3 men entered the office and demanded money.

Employees say the 3 suspects were wearing masks over their faces and at least one of the suspects had a handgun. Two of the suspects were described as being between 5'4" and 5'8". Witnesses say the third suspect was wearing a gold colored mask.

No injuries were reported during either of the incidents and officers searched the area after both robberies, but were not able to find the suspects.

Anyone with information about either of these incidents is asked to contact the Temple Police Department at 254-298-5500.
