Fort Worth Police Seek Help Identifying Armed Robber

Fort Worth police are asking for help identifying a man who robbed a Metro PCS store armed with a handgun.

The store clerk handed over an undisclosed amount of money and the man left.

Police described the robber as black, in his mid 20s and between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall with a slender or medium build. The man may have had dreadlocks and a beard. He was wearing a white or light-gray hooded jacket with dark gray sweatpants and shoes. The man appeared to have a "teardrop" tattoo on the ride side of his face near his eye.

The man was believed to be driving a late-model tan or gold four-door car similar to a Hyundai Elantra.
