Houston Police Department Searches for Two Suspects Involved in a Convenience Store Robbery
Last month, the Houston Police Department launched an investigation into a convenience store robbery that took place in Southeast Houston. According to the authorities, two individuals stormed the store on April 27 at around 5:30 am, in the 4700 block of the Gulf Freeway.
The surveillance footage from the scene captures two masked men wearing gloves entering the store and leaping over the counter. Once behind the counter, one of the robbers pointed a firearm at the clerk and demanded money from the till. The employee complied, and both suspects were handed the cash drawer with an unknown amount of cash inside.
While one of the suspects searched for additional items behind the counter, the other accomplice kept the firearm aimed at the clerk. Both individuals then left the store, jumping over the counter on their way out.
The Houston Police Department has since released a detailed description of the suspects. Suspect no. 1 is a male aged between 20 to 29 years old, weighing around 140 to 180 lbs. He was wearing a black jacket and blue jeans during the incident. On the other hand, suspect no. 2 is also a male aged between 20 to 29 years old, weighing around 140 to 180 lbs. He was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt and blue jeans.
The authorities are urging anyone with information related to the incident, or the whereabouts of the suspects, to come forward and contact the Crime Stoppers of Houston.
