TEMPLE -- Police are investigating another Temple robbery that left employees of a restaurant standing in a freezer.
Around 6 a.m. a Bush's Chicken in the 4600 block of 31st Street was robbed.
The suspect entered the restaurant, displayed a gun and demanded money.
He then forced the morning employees into a freezer and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.
This same tactic was used when a Temple Sonic was robbed December 21.
"Very similar method of doing the robbery and the description of the suspect is going to be very similar also. In this case he is an unusually tall person which is probably the same as the Sonic. At least 6'4 and very muscular build," said Sgt. Brad Hunt, Temple police.
Police believe the suspect may have fled East in a vehicle that was parked nearby.
Anyone with information about the suspect or who may have seen a suspicious car in the neighborhood East of 31st Street is asked to contact temple police immediately.
