Eight Armed Suspects Rob West Houston Area Business

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 Tuesday, January 7, 2020 at 1:15 am, eight unknown suspects, all armed with weapons, forced entry into the Bombay Express, located at 10732 West Bellfort, in Houston, Texas.  As the employees were closing up for the night, they heard the glass break and saw the suspects. All of the employees then attempted to hide as the suspects made entry through the front door. The suspects then located the employees and stole their money, jewelry and cell phones. The suspects then focused on the gaming machines and were able to break into some of them with a hammer and take the money from the machines. During the robbery, the suspects fired their weapons on at least two occasions and assaulted one of the ten employees by striking him with a weapon, causing him to bleed. The suspects then fled the location possibly in a white Ford Explorer. Houston PD #27920-20

Suspect descriptions: Eight unknown suspects all wearing dark clothing with their faces concealed. The witnesses stated that during the robbery, some of the suspects were overheard speaking in Spanish.
