Video: Ada police release photos of robbery suspect

Ada —

Ada police have released video footage and video still photos of the man they believe committed a home invasion Friday.

According to police, the man visited a convenience store just prior to attempting to rob an Ada resident. In the footage, the man is seen wearing blue jeans, a black stocking cap and a dark hooded sweatshirt with a large decal on the front and two lines of script on the back.

Police believe after visiting the store the man went to a home in the 1000 block of E. Sixth and knocked on the door. When a man living at the house answered the door, the suspect reportedly asked to use the restroom and when he was refused, forced his way into the home and wrestled with the resident, demanding money.

The resident said the suspect beat him over the head with a handgun several times, before accidentally dropping the gun. The resident and the suspect then wrestled for the gun.

The suspect eventually gained control of the gun and fled, after allegedly hitting the resident a few more times, telling the resident “if he called the cops, he would kill him.”

The suspect, described by the victim as a white male, six feet tall with a thin build reportedly ran northwest from the intersection of Sixth and Highland at or just before 3:20 p.m. Friday — the time when the victim called 911.

Police believe someone will recognize the suspect from the video footage and photos. Anyone with information to this crime is asked to call Ada police at 332-4466, or CrimeStoppers at 33CATCH — 332-2824.
