Phone Store Employee Sucker Punched During Robbery

Crime Stoppers and the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division need the public's assistance identifying the suspects responsible for a robbery with bodily injury.

On Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 5:02 pm, an unknown black male entered the Boost Mobile, located at 5003 Antoine Drive, in Houston, Texas. The male was allowed into the business by the employee working behind the counter because it was initially thought that he was a customer. Once inside, the male covered his face and then quickly approached the employee and punched him in the face with a closed fist. The suspect then forcibly grabbed the employee and made him open the cash drawer and removed the money. The suspect then took the employee to the back office and had him place cell phones in a trash bag. During the incident, the suspect kept threatening the employee by stating that he was going to shoot him. The male suspect opened the door for a black female, who assisted him during the incident. The employee suffered a busted lip and bruising as a result of the assault. The suspects fled the store in a white four door sedan. HPD case #753306-18
