On November 12 at around 11pm, police say officers were called to the New Tony Express service station at 4010 Synott and were advised that a suspect robbed the business. After he pointed a gun at an employee, the suspect jumped over a counter to gain access to a cash register.
Once the employee gave him money, the suspect attempted to leave through the front door, but could not. He then climbed through ceiling tiles and entered a neighboring business to escape.
The suspect is described only as a black male in his 20s. He was armed with a silver pistol and carried a black backpack.
Anyone with information on the identity of the wanted suspect is urged to contact the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
