VIDEO: Houston motel clerk viciously beaten during robbery

HOUSTON – Police are searching for two men who robbed a motel in north Houston and viciously beat the desk clerk.

The robbery happened back on Aug. 25, at 7 a.m., at the America’s Best Value Inn in the 700 block of North Sam Houston Parkway. 

In the video, one of the men is seen jumping over the counter and punching the clerk in the face. As the clerk was trying to protect himself, the suspect grabbed a glass jar and hit the clerk in the head with it and then continued to punch him. 

The man grabbed money from the cash drawer as his partner pointed a handgun at the guests from the hotel, while they were eating breakfast, and told them to stay quiet. He grabbed their cell phones. 

Both men ran from the motel on foot. 

The front desk clerk was taken to the hospital for head injuries. There’s no word on his condition. 

Here are the suspect descriptions from police: 
Suspect No. 1: Black male, 20 to 30 years old, black hoodie with Victoria Sport on back, blue pants
