Armed man demands money from medical clinic

Friday afternoon around 3:00 pm Houston police got a call of a robbery at the IBN Sina Medical Clinic off Wilcrest Dr.

Witnesses tell FOX 26 News that the man was sitting in the waiting room for about 15 minutes before he got up to go to the reception desk. After several minutes of talking to staff, he allegedly pulled out a gun and demanded money.

"Of course he wanted the money so he started counting, give me the money if not I'll shoot and he said, one, two, so that's when everybody ran", says the office manager Mariela Soberanis.

At the time Erika Faria was inside one of the patient rooms when she heard the man yelling. She says, "I was in the clinic waiting to see a doctor and so I heard it all and I just locked the door and kind of went behind the exam table and waited".

Witnesses tell us the man was African American, tall and slender, seen wearing a grey t-shirt and khaki shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to call police, or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
