HOUSTON - Crime Stoppers and the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division need the public's assistance identifying the suspects responsible for an aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.
On Sunday, January 26 at 2:30 p.m., a man walked into the Stripes located at 7925 Howard Dr. and grabbed several 18 packs of beer and walked out of the store without attempting to pay for them. The complainant, who is a homeless man that was outside in front of the store, ran after the suspect as he was getting into his truck and jumped on his step rails.
