Sheriff’s office warns of serial robbers

EAST HARRIS COUNTY— Harris County detectives need help identifying several serial robbers they consider to be armed and dangerous.
Detectives say they think the suspects are involved in a series of robberies in northeast Harris County. The latest attack occurred on November 3 at a gas station in the 17000 block of the East Freeway. This is about a mile east of the San Jacinto River Bridge,
A 42-year-old was filling up his vehicle with gas when a black four-door car pulled up and a man got out, approached the victim and demanded his wallet. When the man refused to hand it over, the suspect hit him on the head and a short fight followed.

During the struggle, two other men, one armed with a gun, got out of the car and ganged up on the victim. The suspects took the wallet and ran back into their car, where a fourth side was waiting behind the wheel. As the car sped off, one of the suspects fired a gunshot, which struck the victim’s vehicle.
The suspects were described as Hispanic males between the ages of 18 and 27. They were wearing gray or light-colored hoodies. Their vehicle may have been a Toyota Camry. Anyone with information regarding their identities is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
