Crime Stoppers and the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division need the public's assistance identifying the suspect responsible for two robberies with a deadly weapon.
On Monday, January 21, 2019 at 10:00 pm, an unknown black male entered the Little Caesars Pizza, located at 12520 Westheimer, in Houston, Texas. The male immediately walked around the counter and told the employee to open the cash register. The incident caught the employee off-guard and she refused to comply with the suspect. The male then punched the female twice with a closed fist causing her glasses to fall off and once again demanded the money. The employee then opened the register and the suspect removed the money and walked out of the business. HPD case #91792-19
The same male then left the Little Caesar’s Pizza and went directly to the Walgreen’s, located at 12550 Westheimer at 10:12 pm and committed a second robbery. The male walked into the Walgreen’s and approached the employee behind the counter. The employee stated that it appeared that the suspect was holding a gun under his shirt and he then demanded that she open the cash register. The employee complied with the suspect and opened the cash register, at which time the male removed the money and fled the scene. HPD case #91814-19
