Pregnant woman among 2 pistol-whipped during cell phone store robbery

HOUSTON - Investigators say two employees, one of them pregnant, were pistol-whipped during a violent holdup at a T-Mobile store in Cypress.

It happened at around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. Witnesses say three masked men armed with long guns stormed into the T-Mobile store on FM 1960 near Eldridge.

No shots were fired, but we're told the men did get violent. The two women had to be taken to the hospital. Their condition is unknown.

Local 2 talked to a woman who works next door who says she heard everything through the wall.

"I overheard yelling, and commotion and things being thrown around. I heard one of the guys yell at someone. They were telling them, 'I just want all the money and give me all the phones that you have,'" said the witness.

Witnesses say they saw the three men drive away in a black older-model Chevy Impala.

There is no word if any customers were inside at the time.

The store has closed for the night while the investigation continues.
