The first robbery committed by the scowling man occurred on the night of Tuesday, August 9 at a food truck located at 2800 West Mount Houston Road, right on the corner of Lincoln Drive. His modus operandi is quite simple. He enters the businesses armed with a shotgun.

After the robber points a gun at the customers and employees of the food trucks, he demands all the cash inside. The man allegedly speaks in Spanish and angrily insults his victims until they comply with his demands. Filed Under: Man robs Houston food trucks

The last robbery occurred on Sunday, August 21, and the thefts have Hispanic food merchants on edge. The authorities believe that there could be more victims, but that they may not have dared to report the man for fear of reprisals.
