Crosby restaurant robbed

CROSBY – While most were trying to settle in from a day of celebrations of values and virtues associated with mothers, one guy decided to take advantage of a lull in the rain, the cash register, and the patrons’ purses at 14602 Crosby Lynchburg Rd.

That location is directly across the street from the Wal-Mart, Murphy’s gas station.

Baytown Seafood employees indicate it was about 7:08 p.m. on May 8, when a gap-toothed, short, ruddy shaven, red-haired, slim, younger man wearing pantyhose over his face, latex gloves, a blue sweater and black pants began to rob patrons and the restaurant brandishing a pistol. After amassing an undisclosed amount of cash, he ran out of the restaurant and toward the Northeast, a wooded area is nearby in that direction. Employes indicate he was brash yet nervous with the patrons.

Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies were notified at about 7:20 p.m. They obtained a slightly different description: the white male was said to be wearing a blue sweatshirt with a hood, and blue jeans. The suspects height was described as between 5’4″ and 5’7″.

Hopefully, someone reading this saw the suspect, or knows the suspect or has some information that could help authorities apprehend this suspected of aggravated robbery and apparently dangerous person.

The number of the Harris County Robbery Division is (713) 967-5770, the number for Crimestoppers is (713) 222-TIPS.
