Violent Suspects Wanted in Cell Phone Store Robbery

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

On Sunday, June 23, 2019 at 12:30 pm, two unknown males entered the Boost Mobile, located at 12151 Northwest Freeway, in Houston, Texas. One of the males walked up behind the employee and forcibly placed his arm around her neck. The suspect started to yell at the employee demanding the money. The employee immediately fought back with the suspect and was assaulted during the struggle. Meanwhile, a second suspect has also entered the store, walked to the cash register and started going through the drawers. During the entire incident, the employee resisted, resulting in the suspects leaving without any money from the store and left with just a few phones. The suspects got into a red new model Hyundai Elantra and fled the scene. Houston PD #797350-19
