Authorities seek trio in connection with Houston Verizon store robbery

Officials: Cleaning crew was in store when break-in took place

HOUSTON - Authorities are asking for the public's help in identifying three people wanted in connection with an aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

A cleaning crew was in the Verizon store at 10900 Gulf Freeway at 3:49 a.m. on Sept. 21. Officials said the cleaning crew had locked the doors and were in the process of cleaning inside.

The cleaning crew then heard a loud noise and observed someone breaking into the business, officials said. They ran toward the back door to run out of the store, but only one person managed to get away while the other was caught by the suspects and dragged back into the business.

Officials said the complainant was then assaulted by the three unknown masked suspects by being hit with a closed fist to the face, knees and legs, causing bodily injury.

The suspects were unable to get into the safe, so no property was stolen, officials said.

One of the suspects is described by officials as a black male who wore a blue jacket, black pants and red shoes. Another suspect is described as a black male who wore a blue pullover, black Adidas pants and black shoes. The third suspect is described as a male who wore a gray pullover and gray pants.

Crime Stoppers may pay up to $5,000 for information that leads to the charging and/or arrest of the suspect in this case. Officials said information may be reported by calling 713-222-TIPS (8477) or submitted online here.
