WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A suspect is in custody for the April grab and run theft of a backpack containing $16,000 cash, a Glock handgun and a loaded magazine while the victim was in the barber’s chair.
19-year-old Eternity Hull was booked into jail Wednesday, June 15, and charged with theft over $2,500 and theft of a firearm.
It happened on Wednesday, April 27, at The Barber Shack in the 4000 block of Kemp.
The victim said he was in the chair getting a haircut at about 3:15 p.m. that day when the suspect walked in, stood behind him for a while, then grabbed his $2,600 Louis Vuitton backpack and ran out. He said the backpack contained around $16,000 cash, the key fob to his vehicle, a 9 mm Glock pistol and a loaded 30-round magazine.
Police said video showed the robbery and the suspect being chased down the alley.
Witnesses were shown photo lineups and identified the suspect as Hull. Hull was a star basketball player at Hirschi, making the All-District team in 2018.
A police spokesperson said when Hull was arrested at a disturbance Wednesday morning, they recovered the gun but found nothing else.
The victim in this case was also charged in April with unlawfully carrying a weapon and possession of a controlled substance.
