Suspects in armed robbery of AT&T workers at SW Houston store captured on video
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Houston police are shining the spotlight on a pair of dangerous robbers who held up two AT&T workers back in December.
HPD robbery investigators say the men held up the AT&T workers at gun point and may possibly be linked to other robberies of people getting out of their cars in the area recently.
At around 7pm on December 3, 2012, police say two AT&T employees were working at the business in the 6700 block of Westwick when they were approached by the two suspects wearing ski masks. Investigators say both suspects were armed.
One suspect reportedly pointed his weapon at the victims and demanded their phones and wallets while the other suspect stayed near the rear of their vehicle, likely serving as a lookout.
The victims complied and the suspect took off on foot to a nearby townhome complex, according to police.
The victims reported their credit cards were used shortly afterwards at the Famous Footwear store at 2938 Eldridge. The cards were also used at a T. J. Maxx in the 2900 block of Eldridge and at a Bank of America drive-thu ATM.
Both suspects are described as black males, about 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing around 140 pounds.
Anyone with information in this case or on the identities of the wanted suspects is urged to contact the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
