The Dallas Police Department sends word this morning that it's looking for the man you see in the video above, who's suspected of having gone on a "three-hour crime spree" January 29 during which, police say, he robbed three different massage parlors at gunpoint. Among the businesses hit was the Blue Angel Body Bath on Emerald Street, near Royal Lane and Stemmons, seen in the clip at top. Says DPD:

The suspect, described as being a white male in his early 30's, weighing approximately 200 pounds and standing 6'0" tall, entered three separate bath house/massage parlors and robbed the employees at gunpoint. He was wearing a white Under Armor ball cap and has a tattoo of three stars on his left arm and a Chinese symbol on the back of the neck. ... The suspect fled the location in the below pictured vehicle which is possibly a grey Chevy Impala, with 20" chrome rims.

Anyone with information on this suspect or these offenses is asked to contact Dallas Police Robbery Detectives at (214) 671-3602.
