Your help is needed to catch a man behind an aggravated robbery at a northwest Harris County gas station last month.

It happened on December 21 at around 2:20am. A single suspect entered the gas station in the 7000 block of West FM 1960. Once inside, he approached the counter brandishing a gun.

Investigators say the suspect demanded cash and gave the employee five seconds to give him the money in the register.

The store clerk complied, and then before leaving, the suspect also demanded for a pack of cigarettes before taking off on foot.

The suspect is described as an African-American male, approximately 25 years old. He stands 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 and weighs between 175 and 180 pounds. He has a think beard and sideburns.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspectis asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Houston at (713) 222-TIPS (8477). You'll be eligible for a reward of up to $5,000 and will remain anonymous.
