Cell store robbery caught on video

HOUSTON Back on Friday at around 11:30am, investigators with the Harris County Sheriff's Office say a Hispanic male entered the Cricket Wireless store on 2212 Fry Road and approached one of the three employees. Armed with a gun, he allegedly demanded the employee give him money and ordered all three employees to the ground.

Seconds later, investigators say a customer entered the store not knowing it was being robbed, and two additional suspects followed her in, shoved her to the ground and took her purse.

The suspects reportedly then left the store with some cash and numerous cell phones.

The second suspect is a black male in his 20's with a medium build. He was wearing a white shirt, dark pants and white shoes. He also wore a black bandana that covered his face with a black shirt over his head and dark gloves. The third suspect is a white male in his late teens to early 20's with a skinny build. He was wearing a dark shirt, dark pants with white shoes. He also had a black bandana on his face and dark gloves.
