2 men accused of using stun gun to immobilize employee during robbery

FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas – The Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers is asking for the public's help with information on two men who robbed a telephone store, officials said.

According to authorities, two men walked into the Cell Spa telephone store, located in the 11700 block of State Highway 6 at 4 p.m. on April 26.

Officials said the men used a stun-gun device to immobilize one employee and stole property from the store.

Officials said the two men ran outside, with other clerks chasing after them into the parking lot, but the pair fled in a white, older-model Hyundai hatchback SUV.

“It is amazing what people will do to steal property,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls. “Even though the store owner did his best to keep his property (a phone) while attempting to remain safe, the suspects used a stun gun to help them escape. While the video isn’t close up, we still have a vehicle and two suspects that we can find. Call Crime Stoppers for some quick cash.”

The first person of interest is described as a black man dressed like a woman, approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall.

Authorities said he had black dreadlocks in a ponytail and was wearing a white tank top and multicolored tights and was carrying a purse.

The second person of interest is described as a black man about 5 feet 8 inches tall who was wearing a black shirt with dark blue pants. He had long dreadlocks put up in a ponytail.

Anyone who has information about this crime is asked to call Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers Inc. at 281-342-TIPS (8477), send a text message by texting "FBCCS" plus your tip to CRIMES (274637) or by submitting online here: http://www.fortbend.crimestoppersweb.com/.

Information that leads to the apprehension of and filing of charges against the individuals involved in this case could earn you as much as $5,000. All calls to Crime Stoppers are anonymous.
