Authorities say they need the public's help identifying three male suspects responsible for the armed robbery of a Houston area gas station.

On September 11, deputies say they responded to a gas station location on the 4800 block of Spring Stuebner Rd in reference to an armed robbery. The 48-year-old victim told deputies that at approximately 6:15pm two Hispanic males entered the store. The first suspect drew a pistol from his waistband, pointed it at the victim and demanded the cash from the register. The second suspect was standing by the front door as a lookout. The victim, in fear for her life, complied with the suspect's demands and gave up an indeterminate amount of cash.

Deputies say surveillance cameras at the store captured images of the suspects arriving at the station in a silver four-door Dodge Charger. A third Hispanic male suspect was identified entering the store minutes before the robbery, asking to use the restroom, and casing the station. This third suspect fled when the two armed suspects committed the offense.

The first suspect is described as an Hispanic male, 17-20 years old, about 5 foot 4, 130-140 lbs, thin build, with a distinctive multi-color tattoo extending from under his left short sleeve shirt to his wrist. At the time of the offense, the suspect was wearing a brown ball cap, a striped shirt, dark shorts and a necklace with a pendant. The suspect was armed with a pistol.

The second suspect is an Hispanic male, 17-20 years old, also about 5 foot 4, 120-130 lbs, with a thin build. The suspect wore a dark colored shirt with a white design, dark shorts and a ball cap.

The third suspect is described as an Hispanic male, 17-20 years old, 5 foot 5 to 5 foot 7, 150-160 lbs, with a thin build. He was wearing a gray shirt and dark shorts at the time of the offense.
