2 Robberies Take Place in Missoula

Posted: Updated:

Police are still on a city-wide man hunt for a robbery suspect they believe to be armed with a semi-automatic hand gun.

The manhunt caused several schools, including the University of Montana, to step up security procedures and spark a flurry of activity on social media.

While police do not have a clear suspect, university police say the suspect may be the reported rapist who escaped from Bozeman this past weekend.

It all began around 9:20am, when a man armed with a gun robbed the Motel 6 on East Broadway.  Twenty minutes later the Taco Bell across the street was robbed and the suspect left on foot. Police warned area residents to lock their homes as the suspect may have been looking to get in out of the cold.

Det. Sgt. Travis Welsh of the Missoula Police Department said "If a suspect is going in, whether to keep warm or to hide, if he is in fact on foot, so I would caution businesses and residents in the area to secure their locations as they see fit."

Police have released two different descriptions of the suspect, but they believe both robberies were carried out by one man.

Motel 6 employees describe him as a white male, standing at 5'5", with brown hair.  he was wearing a red Hellgate High School letterman jacket with the name "Jennifer" on it, a teal bandana, sunglasses, and bags over his shoes.

Taco Bell employees say the alleged robber was a white male with brown hair, in his early 20s. He was wearing a blue hoodie, black sunglasses, jeans, dark shoes and light socks, a white bandana, and black gloves.

People at both businesses say the man brandished a black, semi-automatic pistol.  anyone with information should call Detective Guy Baker at 396-3217 or Missoula Crime Stoppers at 721-4444.
