Crime Stoppers and Houston police need your help in identifying and locating two brazen robbers who accosted a woman in the Ben Taub Hospital garage back on April 1. Their victim had just put her two-week-old baby in the baby carrier in the back seat of her blue 2003 Ford Expedition. One suspect grabbed the woman by the back of the neck and forced her into the back seat, while the other suspect, who was armed with a knife, entered the back seat from the passenger side.

The first suspect demanded the keys to the vehicle, plus the woman's ATM card and PIN number. They covered the woman's eyes and made her lie down in the back seat. The two men drove to several different ATM locations and took money from the woman's account. They dropped her and the baby off near the intersection of Antoine and West Gulf Bank in northwest Houston.

The victim located a police officer and reported the robbery. Her vehicle was recovered later in the 7900 block of Bellfort in southeast Houston, which is around 22 miles away.

The first suspect was caught on a surveillance video at one of the ATMs. He's described as a black male, 20-30 years old, about 5'4" to 5'6" tall, with black hair. The second suspect is described as a black male 20-30 years old, about 5'6" - 5'8" tall.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information called in to the 713-222-8477 (TIPS) hotline or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org that leads to the arrest of any suspect in this case. All tipsters remain anonymous.
