WATCH: Armed Thugs Pistol Whip, Rob Store Owner

Pasadena, Texas – The Pasadena Police are on the hunt for three robbery suspects known to be armed and dangerous.

After robbing the Ark Food Station two days prior, the stick-up team sprinted into a Valero Gas Station with guns drawn.

ABC 13 reports that one of the three watched the door as the others proceeded to restrain the innocents inside.

One thug jumped over the front counter and pointed his pistol at the back of the store where the owner was, who was then dragged to the register and forced to open it.

While ripping the cash from the register, the thug pistol whipped the owner in the head.

A customer in the store tried to walk out, but one of the thugs dragged her back in and stole her cell phone.

After analyzing the two robberies, police say that the crimes appear to be escalating.

The two male thugs were masked, but the female accomplice watching the door was not.

According to ABC13:

“The group got away with cash and a customer’s cell phone.

Investigators say they need the public’s help to identify the suspects.

If you know anything about these crimes, call Pasadena Police or Crime Stoppers.”

KPRC2 reports this:

“The employee was not hurt and wants to remain anonymous.

The clerk who was robbed at gunpoint told KPRC 2 she is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for the crime.”
