Police on the Lookout for Armed Metrorail Robber

Most people on the Metrorail in the early morning are headed to jobs to make money legitimately, but police suspect an armed bandit has been going to work terrorizing the Allapattah area in a string of armed robberies.

Two women were robbed at gunpoint this morning. The first incident occurred at 7:09 at NW 10th Avenue and NW 34th Street. Another incident occurred about a half-hour later, at 7:42, at the station located at NW 12th Avenue and NW 33rd Street.


Police think the suspect in both cases is the same, and describe him as "a black male approximately 5'9", 150 to 160 pounds, 17 to 23 years old, shoulder-length hair in dreads with a ponytail, last seen wearing a black polo shirt and khaki shorts."

The same suspect might also be responsible for four other armed robberies near the same Metrorail station in the past two weeks. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Miami Police Department's Robbery Unit at 305-603-6370 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
