Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - Surveillance images of two people suspected of robbing two AT&T employees in west Houston were released on Tuesday.

Houston police said the employees were working in the 6700 block of Westwick near Bellaire about 7 p.m. on Dec. 3 when two men approached them.

The men were wearing ski masks and were armed with weapons, police said. One of the attackers pointed a weapon at the employees and demanded phones and wallets while the other acted as a lookout, investigators said.

The employees complied and the robbers ran to a nearby townhome complex, investigators said.

A short time after the robbery, credit cards stolen from the employees were used at a Famous Footwear in the 2900 block of Eldridge, a TJ Maxx in the 2900 block of Eldridge and a Bank of America drive-through ATM.

Surveillance cameras at one of the stores captured images of the suspects. They were both described as black, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 140 pounds with slim builds.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
