Houston Police are searching for three armed suspects caught on surveillance video robbing a southwest Houston cell phone store.

Store surveillance video shows two of the suspects barging into the Metro PCS located off 3318 West Fuqua June 2. One of the suspects can be seen pointing a handgun directly at an employee and demanding cash, while a second suspect walks in behind him holding a large trash bag. The second suspect then places his hand over a woman customer’s face, pushing her to the floor, before he grabs her purse and meets the first suspect near the cash register.

The third suspect remained at the door as a look out, according to Houston Police. The three suspects are described as men wearing mostly black clothing. The suspects face charges of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, according to police.

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the suspects. Anyone with information is urged to call 713-222-TIPS (8477).
