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 Sunday, August 5, 2018 at 1:10 am, two unknown black males entered the Shell, located at 2917 Mangum, in Houston, Texas. One of the males was armed with a handgun and jumped on the counter while pointing a handgun at the clerk. The second suspect remained at the front door as a look-out. The suspect with the handgun demanded that the clerk open the cash register while pointing the gun at him. When the clerk was taking too long, the suspect racked the slide on the handgun and threatened to shoot the clerk if he did not open the cash drawer. The suspect eventually gave up and jumped off the counter and fled the store along with the second suspect. HPD case #993432-18
