Rosenberg police are looking for a robber who reportedly pulled a knife on a man he met on the internet.

At about 3am Saturday, police were called to the 1000 block of 8th Street. The victim told them he had met a man online and they had agreed to meet at an undisclosed location. When he got there, the suspect entered the victim's vehicle, pulled out a knife and demanded the victim drive to an ATM about three blocks away. The suspect forced the victim to withdraw cash, stole it and fled on foot.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his 20s, about 6 feet tall with a thin build and no facial hair. At the time of the crime he was wearing a black hoodie and dark colored pants.

If anyone has information on the whereabouts of the suspect in the case, they're asked to contact Rosenberg PD Investigator John Rivers at 832-595-3700 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS.
