LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Robby Brian Stevens, 43, managed to elude police twice during a Thursday morning manhunt. First he got away from Longview Police when they spotted him around 5 a.m. in northwest Longview.

Around 9:30 a.m., East Mountain Police Officer Mark Nichols pulled over Steven's vehicle.

“We received information from Upshur County investigators that the subject they were looking for may possibly be in our area. We were able to locate the vehicle that he was possibly in and tried to make a traffic stop. That’s when he managed to jump out the passenger door and keep running from us,” Nichols said.

Longview police had been looking for Stevens as well.

“We have the China King robbery several weeks ago, and we think he may be involved in some other robberies around town,” said Longview Police officer Kristie Brian.

An arrest warrant was issued for Stevens when police identified him as the man who robbed China King in Longview on December 20. According to the arrest warrant, he told the cashier to give him the drawer or she would die before Christmas. He took the cash drawer and left in a silver four-door car.

A car matching that description was seen Wednesday night at Chili’s and Cheddars in Longview. Robbery attempts were made at both locations, but nothing was taken.

Upshur County is looking into the possibility that Stevens may be involved in the Diana robberies of an individual and the Dollar General.

Stevens is on parole and his previous charges include aggravated assault, evading arrest and burglary.  He is presently charged with aggravated robbery with a bond of $30,000 and a charge of violating parole. Authorities say more charges could be filed.
