Authorities are searching for a suspect who robbed two church members at gun point last week.

On December 7 at around noon, police say two people were at a church located on the 11200 block of Bentley Road in north Houston when a man entered the church and approached the male victim. The suspect was asking the male victim about prayer. He then withdrew a pistol and ordered the victim into an office at gunpoint. The suspect demanded cash and personal property belonging to the male victim and a second female victim.

The victims, in fear for their lives, complied with the suspect's demands and handed the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash and personal property. The suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 25-35 years old, approximately 5 foot 8, weighing 150 lbs, with medium complexion. He has dark brown hair with a pony tail and side burns. The suspect has a distinctive tattoo on the right side of his neck. The tattoo is in red and black letters and says "Angel."
