Crime Stoppers and robbery investigators with the Harris County Sheriff's Office hope you can help them identify several serial robbers wanted for numerous armed robberies at local fast food restaurants. On Tuesday, May 3, employees were in the process of closing the restaurant located in the 7000 block of South Lake Houston Parkway. A maroon four-door Buick pulled up and two black male suspects approached the door and asked to buy a cup of ice, according to Crime Stoppers.

When the victim opened the door, one of the suspects reportedly pulled out a gun and demanded cash from the registers. The second suspect walked the other female victim to a back room and also demanded cash. Both suspects fled the scene in the maroon, four-door Buick. The Buick had a neon light around the rear license plate.

Officials say within the hour, the maroon four-door Buick pulled up to the restaurant located in the 3000 block of Little York Road. An employee was in the process of closing when a black male and a Hispanic male suspect approached the door and asked to buy a cup of ice.
