The robbery was reported around noon at a convenience store parking lot located in the 4200 block of South Kirkwood, in southwest Houston.

One suspect, armed with an assault rifle, and the second suspect, armed with a handgun, reportedly demanded the victim’s money and car keys. The suspect holding the rifle snatched the victim’s money, which was reportedly $2, while the second suspect attempted to steal the victim’s Ford Mustang but was unable to find the keys.
