The Harris County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help identifying a male subject who investigators say robbed a convenience store employee at gunpoint.
Investigators released video of the robbery in hopes that someone can help identify the subject.
Deputies responded to a gas station in the 9400 block of Airline around 6:30 a.m. on June 8. An employee told investigators he was opening the store for the day when a male subject ran up behind him, pointed a pistol and the employee and told him to deactivate the alarm. Deputies say the male assaulted the employee while threatening him, forced the employee to empty the cash drawers and fled the scene.
The subject is described as a black male, 5'11 to 6' in height, and weights 160-170 pounds. Deputies say he has short twist or dreads hair style.
Anyone with information on the subject is asked to call the HCSO Robbery Division at (713)22-TIPS.
