NEW DETAILS: Police describe suspect in North Austin credit union robbery


3:30 p.m. update: Austin police are searching for a man who robbed a North Austin credit union Saturday afternoon.

Police received calls at about 1 p.m. that a man walked into the Austin Telco Credit Union and demanded cash from a teller, Cpl. Chad Martinka said. The man, who arrived just before the facility at 13831 North U.S. 183 was set to close for the day, did not display a weapon, and police do not know if he was armed, Martinka said.

The teller complied, and the man left the store with an unknown amount of money, Martinka said.

The suspect was described as a white male in his 20s, 6-foot to 6-foot-2 with a thin build and thin mustache. He was last seen wearing a dark brown jacket with a maroon undershirt, blue jeans and gray, white-trimmed Vans-type sneakers.

On Thursday, four men assaulted a maintenance worker and robbed an ATM outside of another Austin Telco Federal Credit Union in Cedar Park. Detectives are investigating whether the incidents are related, Martinka said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Austin police’s robbery tip line at 512-974-5092, or Crime Stoppers at 512-472-8477.
