Posted: Updated:

DALLAS — Police are asking for the public's help to identify the man who robbed an Exxon convenience store in the 2500 block of Lemmon Avenue early Tuesday morning.

In the surveillance video, the robbery suspect is wearing what appears to be a black-and-white flower pattern dress with ankle-high white boots.  He covered his face with underwear.

After entering the store at 5:30 a.m., the suspect pointed what looked to be a gun hidden under his dress at the cashier, then at a customer. The man  took money from both, then fled in an unknown direction.

The suspect is described as a 5'-5", 145-pound  white male. Anyone with information on the suspect or the offense is asked to call the Dallas police robbery unit.
