AUSTIN (KXAN) – Two IHOP restaurants were robbed within an hour of one another early Monday morning and police are still searching for the suspect.

Austin police said the first restaurant, located at 1101 South MoPac was robbed at 3:44 a.m. and the second, located at 901 East Koenig Lane, was robbed at 4:42 a.m.

Police said they believed the robberies are connected because the description of the suspect in each is the same, a black man with a bandana covering his face holding a handgun with a long clip.

No one was injured in the robberies but police said the man should be considered ‘armed and dangerous.
