The Stephenville Police Department is seeking help in identifying a suspect in an aggravated robbery that occurred about 4 a.m. Friday morning at the intersection of the Northwest Loop and Washington Street.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, five foot eight inches tall, of average build. He wore a goatee style beard and had several days of facial hair growth. He was wearing a tan sweatshirt and a baseball cap and wielded a chrome, small caliber semi-automatic handgun.
