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 Thursday, September 5, 2019 at 1:10 pm, the complainant was driving at the 4200 block of Mangum, in Houston, Texas. The complainant stated that the vehicle in front of him made an abrupt stop and two unknown males exited the vehicle and approach his. One of the males walked up to his driver side window while the second suspect stood at his hood. Both of the males were armed with handguns and pointed them directly at the complainant. The male at the complainant's door tapped on his window 2-4 times and demanded that he roll it down. The complainant then rolled down the window and pleaded with the suspect not to harm him. The suspect then struck the complainant in the face with his left hand, demanded his wallet, and then pointed the firearm's muzzle directly against the complainant's face. The suspect then moved his firearm away from the complainants head and fired his weapon twice, shooting the passenger door. Complainant then gave the suspect his wallet and a money clip with cash.
