Police search for two store robbery suspects

HOUSTON (KIAH) — Authorities are looking for two robbery suspects, one of whom pulled out a gun and threatened a convenience store clerk and stole items.

The two unknown suspects entered the store on the 11500 block of Cullen around 11 p.m. Tuesday evening. According to surveillance video obtained by police, the suspects both picked up numerous items from the store and walked towards the clerk, who was working in a secure area protected by bulletproof glass.

As he stood near the register to pay for items, video shows one of the suspects pulled out a handgun, threatened the clerk and asked him to open the window, police said.

The clerk did not comply with the suspect’s requests, so the suspects grabbed their drinks and several bags of crisps and fled the store.

The two suspects are black men, one wearing a multicolored Adidas hoodie and multicolored shorts. The other wore a black jacket, faded jeans, and carried a handgun in his right pocket.

Police are asking those with information related to this incident to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
