Police looking for armed robber targeting people in downtown Austin

A series of robberies in the downtown Austin area has police trying to identify at least one and possibly three suspects.

In the past couple of weeks, police say the suspects followed the victims to their vehicles late at night.  Detective Carlos Vallejo says it's happening on Fifth and Sixth Streets, within a few blocks east of 35, "A black male, (in his) mid to late 30's, would approach couples as they were walking in the downtown area, and present a gun and proceed to rob them at gunpoint."

Police say something else that alarms them is that the suspect or suspects appear to be striking at random.  One guy caught in survillance video is described as tall and lanky, with a gold right front tooth and long dread locks.
