MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police are looking for a suspect who was seen on video robbing Outback Steakhouse in Memphis.
MPD said they responded to a call at the restaurant on Union Avenue around 10:45 p.m. Tuesday. They were told that a man walked into Outback Steakhouse with a gun pointed at employees demanding money from the registers and safe.
He is seen on surveillance footage in an office stuffing his hoodie with money along with removing registers from a safe.
The suspect fled the scene on foot with an undetermined amount of cash, leaving behind empty registers, a safe and a fractured community.
Shambrelle Sullivan is a regular customer at Outback and says the robbery has her on guard and she’s unsure if this will remain her go-to spot for lunch.
“They’re gonna have to really prove themselves for me to come back out here,” Sullivan said. “Because I do have two children and they all I have, and I am all they have at this point in time. So it’ll be very drastic if something happens to me.”
According to police, the suspect is in his mid 20s and around 5 feet, 9 inches to six feet tall. He was seen wearing a blue sweatshirt, white T-shirt, black pants, white shoes and black mask. He is also allegedly armed with a semi-automatic handgun.
No arrests have been made at this time. This is an ongoing investigation.
