Worker pistol whipped during northeast Houston gas station robbery
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Authorities are investigating a violent robbery in northeast Houston.
A worker was pistol whipped during a robbery at a Subway shop inside a gas station near the North Loop and Homestead. An eyewitness says three men came in and robbed the business around 9pm Thursday.
An employee says one man pointed a gun at her. She says she got scared, then dropped some money and the robber hit her in the head.
"I was scared I was going to die," said employee Jessica Cordoba. "He kept saying, 'I'm going to shoot you if you don't give me the money,' so I gave him the money."
The robbers then grabbed some cash and took off. Police say the suspects were wearing masks.
