Surveillance Video, Photos of Suspect Wanted in Robbery Investigation

March 03, 2016 - Houston police have released surveillance video and photos of a suspect wanted in at least two convenience store robberies in west Houston in February.    

The suspect is described only as a black male in his 30s, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, 230 to 240 pounds, with long braids.  He wore jeans and a gray hoodie and was armed with a pistol.  

Surveillance video of the suspect can be viewed on the HPD YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/Bwi4z7yrG-I-.  Surveillance photos of the suspect are attached to this news release.  

The incidents occurred at the following locations:  
  • Timewise Convenience Store at 12355 Katy Freeway about 3:50 p.m. on February 14
  • Exxon Gas Station at 1520 Barker Cypress about 5 p.m. on February 21

In both incidents, the suspect entered the convenience store and approached the counter to buy a soda.  As the employee opened the register to conduct the transaction, the suspect pulled out a pistol and demanded money from the register.  The employees were forced to the ground at gunpoint and the suspect fled on foot in an unknown direction.  

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
