HOUSTON – The Houston Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in locating a suspect accused of robbing a north Houston fast food restaurant at gunpoint.

Police said on Wednesday, March 22, at around 7:45 p.m., an unknown male wearing a gray sweatshirt and black pants entered a Jack in the Box located in the 11200 block of Airline Drive.

Surveillance video released by HPD shows the man walking up to the counter, pulling out a gun, and demanding money from the cash register. The suspect walked around the counter, pointed the gun at the employee, and forced him to open the cash register.
