February 26, 2012 - Investigators in the Houston Police Department Robbery Division have released surveillance photos of two suspects wanted in a robbery in the southwest area of Houston in December 2012.
The suspects are described only as two black males, about 5 feet 6 inches tall, 140 pounds and with slim builds. Both were armed and wore ski masks. Surveillance photos of both suspects are attached to this news release.
About 7 p.m. on December 3, two employees of AT&T were conducting work in the 6700 block of Westwick when they were approached by two unknown male suspects wearing ski masks and armed with weapons. One suspect pointed his weapon at the victims and demanded their phones and wallets while the other suspect remained near the rear of their vehicle as a lookout. The victims complied and the suspects then fled on foot to a nearby townhome complex.
The victims reported their credit cards were used shortly after the incident at the Famous Foot Wear 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.
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.
