‘Hungry Man Bandit’ wanted for series of 9 robberies across southwest Edmonton

Police are looking for a man they think committed nine robberies across southwest Edmonton between February and April.

Most of the robberies happened at restaurants or bars between 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Each time the suspect either ordered food or said he was there to pick up food.

He then flashed a weapon and demanded cash and cigarettes.

Businesses near Ellerslie Road and 111th Street, Saddleback Road, Gateway Boulevard and 53rd Avenue were targeted in robberies that took place between Feb. 24 and April 9.

In a photo caption, police described the man as the “Hungry Man Bandit.”

The suspect is described as a heavy-set Caucasian or Hispanic man, aged 30 to 45 years old, who was five-foot-nine to six feet tall and unshaven.

He was seen wearing a dark ball cap, a dark-blue hoodie, sweatpants and dark shoes.

Anyone with information on the man or the robberies is asked to contact Edmonton police.
