The suspects have been described as two different groups. The first is described as two black males in their twenties, with medium builds and faces covered by bandanas. The second group is described as two Hispanic males in their twenties, with medium builds and their faces covered by t-shirts.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspects is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS.
