TYLER (KETK) — A man is on the run Monday morning after police say he attempted to rob two Tyler donut shops.
The first call came in just before 7:00 am.
Tyler Police tell KETK, the "Tyler Donut" shop on the 500 block of West Front. The man had a handgun and took an undetermined amount of cash.
The robber then went to the "Country Donut" shop on the 200 block of North Beckham.
There, police say the man did not display a gun, but attempted to run out of the shop with a cash register.
He dropped the register as he was running from the store, so did not get away with any cash.
The man ran away from the scene. Police say he is believed to be in possession of a handgun, and is described as a black male, about 5'10'' tall, wearing a grey hoodie.
