VIDEO: Two men on the run after armed robbery at north Houston Dollar General

HOUSTON — Crime Stoppers and the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division have released surveillance footage of a robbery at a Dollar General in north Houston.

The video shows two men entering a Dollar General, located at 1420 Gulf Bank Road, around 6 p.m. on Apri. 23.

One of the suspects went behind the counter and pointed a handgun at the clerk, demanding cash from the registers and safe, while one of his accomplices guarded the doors, according to police.

When the clerk refused to access the safe the two suspects switch places and the second suspect can be seen leaning over the clerk and searching for more money.
