Investigators hope you can help them track down three suspects believed to be behind an aggravated robbery at a Blockbuster store along the Eastex Freeway. Last Sunday shortly before 11pm, three males entered the store at 11,703 Eastex Freeway and began looking at DVDs. Investigators say they waited until all other customers left and then approached the two employees.

The suspects reportedly pulled out guns and demanded the employees' wallets and cell phones. They also forced one of the employees to open the store safe. The three suspects left the store with an undisclosed amount of cash and property from the victims and other items from the store.

All three suspects are described as black males in their late teens to early twenties with skinny builds. The first suspect is around 5'10". He was wearing a black and white baseball cap, a black shirt over a white long-sleeved shirt and tan shorts. The second suspect is around 5'8" tall with possible braided hair. He was wearing a black shirt, red shorts, black shoes and a black doo-rag. The third suspect is around 5'5" and he was wearing a black shirt and red shorts as well.

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.
