A group of armed men stormed a northeast Harris County game room Wednesday and escaped with cash.

Deputies said once the men got past the burglar bars at the business in the 13500 block of Homestead Road at the Eastex Freeway at 2 a.m., they attacked the security guard. They then took the guard's gun, and used it to holdup customers and employees.

Investigators said the crooks not only took money, but managed to steal at least one of the digital video recorders attached to the game room's security cameras. The thieves left a device that recorded still images of the incident.

Deputies were looking at the images to see if it will help them track down the suspects.
