HOUSTON, TX - Houston Police are looking for the five men who almost injured a clerk when they crashed their truck into a northwest Houston convenience store.

The men rammed an F-250 into the Chevron at Memorial Dr. and Beltway 8 West. They were able to knock the ATM loose and load it in the back of the pickup. They did it all in front of the clerk.

"When he jumped behind the counter, I went to the back. I went to the back and locked the door," the clerk said.

While he was locked in the back, the clerk called police. By the time officers got to the store, the suspects were already gone. The Chevron does have a surveillance system, which investigators will review.
