Beer Run Turns Robbery As Witness Helps Employees

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, January 26, 2020 at 2:30 pm, an unknown male walked into the Stripes, located at 7925 Howard Drive, in Houston, Texas. The male grabbed several 18 packs of beer and walked out of the store without making any attempts to pay for them. The complainant, who is a homeless male that was hanging out in front of the store, ran after the suspect as he was getting into his truck and jumped on his step rails. As the suspect started to drive away with the complainant hanging onto the side of the truck, a second suspect, the front passenger in the truck, pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the complainant. The complainant then jumped off the step rail as the truck sped off.  Houston PD #120674-20
