HOUSTON— A woman was sexually assaulted during an armed robbery at an adult entertainment store in northeast Houston Thursday, according to the Houston Police Department.
Police said four armed men walked into the Exotic Adult Superstore in the 15800 block of the Eastex Freeway shortly after 3 a.m. and disarmed the security guard. The suspects held employees at gunpoint while they raided the store.
Two of the suspects allegedly took a woman into the back room and sexually assaulted her. At some point, a clerk managed to set off the silent alarm.
Police arrived to find the suspects leaving the scene in the security guard’s black sedan and a chase ensued, going southbound on Highway 59. The driver of the getaway vehicle increased speed and tried to exit the feeder, but lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a cement support column.
The suspects jumped out of the car and ran in various directions.
One of the suspects was captured during the foot pursuit, the others got away.
