HOUSTON - New surveillance video shows more bold robbers targeting another Houston-area Subway restaurant.

The robbery happened July 28 at the store on Veterans Memorial Drive in northwest Harris County. At 9:14 p.m. security cameras captured three men entering the store. Workers say the men had guns. Two jumped the counter and forced an employee to open the cash register.

Manager Reyes Medina says the men also robbed customers.

"They took their money, cell phones, watches, everything," he said.

This was the fourth time in a year the store had been targeted. Other Subway shops have also been hit.

Houston police are still looking for a man seen in footage pretending to order a sandwich at a Subway on North Shepherd on Aug. 5. The man slides on his stomach over the counter and grabs the cash drawer. Witnesses said he got away in a light blue four-door sedan.

Investigators say businesses like Subway are targets because they are known to have cash on site and are easy to get in and out of.

If you have any information on these robberies, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
