Police say two armed men held up a lingerie store in Humble last night and an employee claims she was sexually assaulted during the incident.

It happened at the Cindie's Lingerie store on First Street West just off the Eastex Freeway around 8pm.

Humble police tell us two men came into the store and robbed the business at gunpoint. Cash was taken from the register. There were two women clerks inside at the time of the incident. According to the Humble Observer, our community newspaper parter, a sexual assault of an employee also took place.

Those two men got away, but the store does have surveillance cameras and according to police, they'll be working with store management to see how that video may help solve this case.
