Crime Stoppers and Harris County Sheriff's Office investigators need your help to identify those wanted in connection with a carjacking and armed robbery last month. On April 29 at around 9pm, the victim was leaving a mall in the 29300 block of the Northwest Freeway. As he was loading shopping bags into his car, investigators say a man approached him from behind and pulled out a gun.

The suspect reportedly forced the victim to get into the passenger's side of the car while the suspect got into the driver's seat. Deputies say the suspect drove the victim's vehicle to the bank, where the suspect tried to use the victim's ATM card to get cash.

While the suspect was distracted, investigators say the victim was able to escape and run for help. The suspect fled in the victim's vehicle, which was found abandoned the next day.

The victim's stolen card was used at a nearby gas station. Surveillance video captured images of two suspects in a newer model Gray Dodge Charger. The car's license plates were covered with duct tape.

After an investigation, detectives determined the same two suspects were likely the same men responsible for another armed robbery near the 12000 block of F.M. 1960. They say the suspects attempted to rob a couple as they were loading their groceries. The couple fought with the armed suspect. He fled from the scene and was picked up by a newer model gray Dodge Charger.

One suspect is described as a black male, between 20 and 30 years of age, standing between 6-feet and 6-foot-2, weighing between 180 and 200 pounds with patchy facial hair, a fade haircut and dark complexion. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

The second suspect is described as a black male, between 17 and 25 years of age, standing between 5-foot-9 and 5-foot-11, weighing between 150-160 pounds, with facial hair and a dark complexion. He was wearing a white shirt, red shorts and white tennis shoes.

The suspect vehicle is described as a newer model gray Dodge Charger.
