Clumsy Robbery Gets Frustrated and Flees Empty Handed

Crime Stoppers and the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division need the public's assistance identifying the suspect responsible for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

On Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at 2:30 am, an unknown male entered the Gulf gas station, located at 9004 North Freeway, in Houston, Texas. The male walked into the store with a bag, pulled a rifle out of it, and demanded the money from the cash register. The male then pointed the gun towards the clerk while continuing to demand the money from the cash register. The clerk immediately hid behind the counter as the suspect stuck the barrel of the rifle through the cash slot while threatening to shoot the gun. The suspect then became frustrated due to not knowing how to operate the rifle and ran out of the store to a dark-colored sport utility vehicle. Houston PD #431738-20

Suspect description: Black male, 25 to 30 years old, 6’0, and 220 to 250 pounds and wore dark clothing. Used an assault rifle, possibly an AR15 with a scope.
