The Midland Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying and locating an aggravated robbery suspect.

On Tuesday afternoon, a man entered Payless Auto Sales and requested assistance in purchasing a vehicle. A car salesman took the suspect on a test drive and pulled over to change seats with the suspect near the 700 block of South Midkiff. While the salesman exited the vehicle, the suspect quickly moved into the driver’s seat and accelerated, causing the salesman to lose his grip and fall to the ground. As the suspect fled the scene, the rear tire of the vehicle ran over the salesman causing serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect is a possible Hispanic male and the stolen vehicle is a silver 2002 Dodge Dakota pickup. The truck may still have paper dealership tags attached to the license plates. Any individuals with information about this crime are asked to call Midland Crime Stoppers at 432-694-TIPS.
