HOUSTON - A man working on an ATM inside a southwest Houston grocery store was robbed in broad daylight Tuesday, officials said.
Houston police said the robber walked up the ATM serviceman at 2:20 p.m. inside a Randalls store in the 4800 block of West Bellfort and put a handgun to his stomach, demanding money.
Bills were scattered on the floor by the ATM machine, a witness said.
No one was wounded.
The robber escaped in a Ford F-250 pickup truck. He was described as a black man, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 170 pounds with a slim build and medium complexion. He was wearing a long-sleeved shirt, blue jeans, baseball cap and sunglasses.
The store has surveillance cameras so officials hope they can shed light on the suspect.
The FBI and Houston Police Department are investigating. They did not say how much money was taken in the robbery.
