Three men, two robberies, one night. Police say the crooks terrorized customers during their crime spree.

The first robbery happened at the In and Out convenience store on Boudreaux in northwest Harris County. The second was at a Texaco in Tomball.

Surveillance video from the Tomball location shows an 8-year-old boy in his baseball uniform playing near the door of the store when three masked armed men rushed in.

Police tells us the boy ran, screaming that there was a robbery.

The men demanded money from the clerk at the register, stole a woman's purse and then took off.

The clerk followed them with a gun, but they got away.

Police say surveillance video of the three robbers ties them to another convenience store armed robbery just miles away and minutes before on Boudreaux near Hooks Airport. In this case, the robbers demanded the wallet of one customer and took cigarettes from the counter.

No arrests have been made.
