VIDEO: 2 men rob Metro PCS store at gunpoint in East Houston, police say
HOUSTON — Houston police are trying to identify two men accused of robbing a phone store in East Houston in early December.
The incident, which took place around 11:30 a.m. at the Metro PCS store at 8615 Tidwell Road on Dec. 4, was caught on surveillance video.
One of the males first acted like a customer and approached an employee inquiring about plans. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and demanded the money from the cash drawer.
