Harris County Sheriff's Department investigators hope you can help them find two men they say robbed a north Harris County store earlier this month. It was back on New Year's Day at around 3pm they say a Hispanic male entered the Rani's World Market on 12,811 Duncan Road and began walking around. A short time later, investigators say a second Hispanic male armed with a gun entered the store wearing a red mask and sunglasses.

That second suspect reportedly approached a store employee and demanded money from the cash register, all the while, the first suspect stood by the door as a lookout. Both suspect fled in a white older model pickup truck, possibly a Ford Ranger.

Investigators say the first suspect is a 20 to 25 year old Hispanic male. He is between 5'8" to 6'0" tall and weighs around 160 to 170 pounds. He was wearing a red t-shirt, black jeans, and black shoes. The second suspect is between 25 to 30 years old and around 5'8" to 6'0" tall. He weighs between 210 to 230 pounds. He was wearing a red mask, sunglasses, a black shirt and shorts. He was carrying a black back pack and was armed with a gun.

The masked gunman, say investigators, is wanted for another robbery at the same location that occurred on November 19 of last year.
