Dramatic Takeover Robbery Captured on Camera

Crime Stoppers and the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division need the public's assistance identifying the suspects responsible for an aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

On Friday, January 5, 2017 at 9:00 am, two employees with the 1% Check Cashing arrived to work and were inside the business with the doors locked at 920 East Little York, in Houston, Texas. While preparing the registers prior to opening for the day, two unknown Hispanic males came out of the bathroom with handguns and approached the employees from behind and demanded the money from the safe and cash drawers. The suspects were very aggressive with their demands causing the employees to fear for their lives. The suspects also threated to shoot the employees if they did not comply. The employees complied with the suspects, who took an undisclosed amount of cash from the business. The suspects then fled the business in a four door sedan, possibly a Chevrolet Malibu. 

The employees later learned that the suspects had gained entry through a hole that was made in the men’s restroom wall sometime during the night. HPD case #18499-18
