Suspect followed couple into home through garage in frightening robbery, police say

Crime Stoppers of Houston are looking for two men accused of holding a couple at gunpoint at their west Houston home.

Authorities say the incident happened in the 6000 block of Riverway near Sage Road and Woodway Drive in the Tanglewood neighborhood on Jan. 16.

In a surveillance video released by the Houston Police Department on Tuesday, you can hear the suspects yelling at the couple and demanding fine items. The couple is seen giving up the jewelry they had, like a wedding ring. The two men can be seen running off shortly after that.
