HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- An optometrist office in Meyerland was robbed nearly a month ago, and the Houston Police Department just released surveillance video of the wanted men.

The alleged robbery happened back on Aug. 18 in the 4700 block of Beechnut.

One of the men remained at the door while the second suspect approached the counter, displayed a handgun, and demanded money, according to Houston police.

The employees complied with the suspect and handed him the money from the cash drawer. Video shows both suspects then run outside, get into a black four-door sedan, and leave the location.

Police said this case is believed to be related to another aggravated robbery that occurred on Sept. 2 at an eye care store in the 5800 block of San Felipe.
