HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -

Crime Stoppers and Investigators with the Harris County Sheriff's Office say they are searching for two masked gunmen responsible for a robbery at a Harris County grocery store on Sunday.

Deputies said they responded to a robbery call on Feb. 3 from the grocery store located on the 11200 block of Perry Road.

At 12:05 am, deputies said two Hispanic men, both wearing hooded sweatshirts and bandanas, went into the store, which was all captured by the store's surveillance system.

The first gunman, who carried a shotgun, leaped over the county and through the protective glass, according to authorities. He allegedly began to strike the victim as the second gunman demanded cash from the register.

In fear, authorities said the victim gave the two men approximately $400 in cash, which the second gunman put into a backpack. Both suspects then fled the scene on foot.

Investigators describe the first gunman as a Hispanic male between the ages of 17 and 20, between 6-foot 1-inch to 6-foot 2-inches and weighs about 160 to 180 pounds. The gunman wore a black hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and a red bandana covering his face.

The second gunman is described by investigators as a Hispanic male also between the ages of 17-20, between 5-foot 7-inches to 5-foot 11-inches and weighs about 190 to 220 pounds. The second gunman wore a dark hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and a red bandana covering his face.
