Casper Police Department released images Friday of a man suspected of robbing a Casper hot wings restaurant on Dec. 29. Police believe the man may also have been involved in an armed New Year’s Eve gas station robbery.

The photos, taken from Wyoming Hot Wings’ security camera footage, show a black man wearing a light-colored hooded sweatshirt, matching pants and a tan jacket. He is wearing dark shoes and carrying a multi-colored bag. Police previously said the man was about 5-feet 10-inches tall.

Police also released a short video clip showing the man entering the restaurant. He leaves the screen and shortly after can be heard demanding money.

The two robberies, which took place on East 12th Street within a half-mile of each other, are still under investigation. Casper police have not yet made any arrests in the case.

Police have said that no one was injured during the commission of the two crimes.

Anyone with knowledge of the crime can contact Casper police at (307) 235-8278.
