Harris County Sheriff's Office investigators and Crime Stoppers needs your help to find three men who robbed a beauty shop last month. Surveillance video was released Friday in the June 15 robbery of the Vega Beauty Shop at 13,641 Tomball Parkway. It shows three Hispanic males walked into the business and asking one of the two employees working how many more people were waiting for haircuts. All three sat down in the waiting area.

A short time later, two of the males walked behind the counter with guns and ordered the two employees and the two customers to get on the ground. The other male pulled out a roll of duct tape and taped all four of the victims up. The suspects stole personal items from all the victims and cash from the beauty shop.

Witnesses told the Deputies that the suspects fled in a blue Ford Explorer with no license plates. They were last seen driving into the Northwest Park Subdivision.

All three suspects are Hispanic males. The first suspect with a gun had a Honduran accent and is 18 to 25 years old with long hair. He is around 5'10" and 160 pounds. He had a piece of duct tape on his throat possibly covering a tattoo. He was wearing a light brown striped polo shirt, light blue jeans and a striped beanie type hat. The second suspect that had a gun is between 25 to 35 years old and is 5'5" to 5'7" tall and around 150 pounds. He has short hair and a goatee with numerous tattoos on his neck. He was wearing a light blue shirt with black jeans and a white baseball cap. The suspect that taped up the victims is 18 to 25 years old around 5'10" and 150 to 160 pounds. He was wearing a white polo shirt and darker blue jeans with a white baseball cap.

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