The Houston Police Department released surveillance footage from an incident which occurred in October of 2021, showing the moments two gas station clerks overtake an armed robber, thwarting the mans robbery intentions.
On Thursday, October 7th, 2021 at 2:40 am, two unknown males entered a convenience store, located at the 2800 block of Reed, in Houston, Texas. The males first acted like customers, at which time one of the males walked around the counter while armed with a handgun and demanded the money from the cash registers.
Both clerks then fought with the suspect and were able to take his gun from him. While fighting the suspect, one of the clerks was also able to retrieve his own gun, pointing it at the suspect numerous times during the scuffle. At one point, the suspect was able to get his gun back when it fell to the ground, but dropped it a second time when the clerk fought the suspect as they made their way from behind the counter to the front of the store.
Both suspects were able to get away and fled across the street towards an apartment complex at 2725 Reed. Since the incident, police reports indicate the suspects involved are still unidentified. Information leading to the charging and/or arrest of any felony suspects may result in a cash payment up to $5,000. Tipsters MUST contact Crime Stoppers DIRECTLY to remain anonymous and to be considered for a cash payment by calling 713-222-TIPS (8477), submitting an online tip at www.crime-stoppers.org or through the Crime Stoppers mobile app.
