HOUSTON – Deputies with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office are searching for a man who they say robbed two north Harris County businesses, within a few minutes from each other, on Sunday.
On Sept. 18 around 9:30 a.m., deputies said a man entered a Subway located at 5627 Aldine Bender Road, approached the counter, demanded money from the cash drawer and then fled the scene.
A few minutes later at 10:09 a.m., deputies said the same man entered a Pizza Hut located in the same shopping center as the Subway and told the employees that he needed the cash from the register.
