Sugar Land, TX - Sugar Land police are looking for a gunman who robbed four businesses on March 13.

The man entered Lifetime Fitness, 1331 Highway 6, just after 6:15 a.m., approached a service counter at a café in the gym, displayed a pistol located in his waistband and demanded cash from the register and safe. The employee was unable to open the register and managed to escape while walking to the safe. No one was injured, and the man was last seen leaving the business.

The same man entered Walmart, 345 Highway 6, a short time later, approached the service counter, displayed a pistol and demanded cash. There was no money in the employee’s register, and the man was last seen exiting the store.

Police believe the same man committed similar crimes at a Kroger in Fort Bend County and a Walmart in Houston later the same day.

The suspect is a white man, 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He had a military-style haircut and was wearing a black baseball cap, a purple shirt, a grey zip-up sweatshirt, dark pants and dark shoes.

Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at (281) 275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477).
