HOUSTON – Houston police are searching for a group of suspects who allegedly stole cash from a sandwich shop in west Houston on June 9.

Police said it happened in the 700 block of Highway 6 near the Energy Corridor area.

At around 2:40 p.m., surveillance video captured a gray-colored Ford Fiesta parking at the corner of the lot near the shop. Two suspects, both wearing hoodies, were seen coming out of the vehicle and walked toward the shop.

At some point, police said the two men acted like a customer at first as they entered the shop. That was when, police said, one of them pulled out a gun and pointed at the employee as they demanded money.

The robbery was not captured on surveillance video, police said.

The employee complied with the suspects’ demands and apparently gave them an undisclosed amount of cash from the register. Then the suspects took off and returned back to the vehicle, which was seen by surveillance video that it had paper plates.

Police are searching for the following suspects:

Suspect 1: Male, 5 foot 7 to 5 foot 11, black hoodie, black bag

Suspect 2: Male, 5 foot 7 to 5 foot 11, blue hoodie
