Man sought in North Side parking lot robberies
Pittsburgh police are looking for a man they say robbed a North Side parking attendant for the second time this month.
The latest holdup occurred at 11 a.m. Wednesday when a man approached the attendant inside the booth in the Alco parking lot on Sandusky Street, showed a gun and demanded money. The attendant told police he gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register, robbery squad Sgt. Lavonnie Bickerstaff said.
The suspect is black, about 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighs about 160 pounds and wore a hoodie sweatshirt with a blue and white skull pattern and black pants. He had a black mask pulled over his chin and mouth and a black glove on his right hand with a white stripe between the index finger and thumb.
A man with the same description robbed a parking lot attendant about 9:30 a.m. Nov. 5 in the Alco Parking Gold Lot 1 on West General Robinson Street. He showed a silver handgun, Bickerstaff said.
Surveillance cameras caught the suspect running from the scene of the first robbery and getting into the driver’s seat of an early 1990s green Nissan, possibly a Maxima, which was parked on Martindale Street, police said.
No vehicle was seen in the second robbery, Bickerstaff said. No one was injured during either robbery.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Pittsburgh police robbery squad at 412-323-7151.
