Houston police have released surveillance photos of one of two suspects wanted for separate armed robberies outside businesses in the Kingwood Town Center and are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects.
The suspects are described only as two black males in their late teens or 20s, with slim builds and wearing hoodies to conceal their faces. It is believed they were driving a gray or silver, four-door vehicle, possibly a Honda Accord, with a sunroof.
A surveillance photo of one of the suspects and a photo of their vehicle are attached to this news release.
The first incident happened outside Russo’s New York Pizzeria at 42 North Main Street about 10:45 p.m. on September 19. A male, 28, was sitting outside and using a laptop computer when he was approached by the two suspects, one of whom was armed with a pistol. The suspects stole the man’s computer and wallet and fled on foot.
HPD Kingwood officers obtained surveillance photos of one of the suspects attempting to use the victim’s credit card to withdraw money at an ATM outside a bank at 3801 Atascocita Road. Another photo showed the suspects’ vehicle in the bank parking lot.
The second robbery occurred outside the McDonald’s restaurant at 4406 Kingwood Drive about 10:40 p.m. on September 25. Two black male suspects, fitting the same description of those in the first incident, robbed a man and two women at gunpoint as they were sitting on the tailgate of a truck in the parking lot. The suspects stole cell phones and fled on foot.
No one was hurt in either robbery.
Anyone with information on the identities of the suspects is urged to contact the Kingwood Patrol Station at 281-913-4500 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

Investigators in the Houston Police Juvenile and Major Offenders Divisions have released a composite sketch of a police impersonation suspect wanted in an indecency with a child incident at 6400 Rustling Elms about 8:30 p.m. on November 18, 2007.
The suspect is described as a white male, 25 to 35 years old, 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet tall, and weighing 160 to 170 pounds.
A 15-year-old girl was at Elm Grove Village Park when she said a suspect approached her, claimed he was a Houston police officer, and asked if she had seen some males on bicycles in the area. He then took her to a wooded area in the park and forcibly removed her clothing and touched her with a pistol. When the girl started screaming, the suspect told her to go back to her home. In that incident, the suspect had several days of facial hair, was wearing a red windbreaker jacket, tan shorts and a black baseball cap.
A similar incident on July 23, 2006 occurred at an apartment complex at 3700 Kingwood Drive about 11:45 p.m. where two 17-year-old females reported a white male confronted them, claiming to be a police officer looking for some males on bicycles. The male had brown hair and a goatee and was driving a red Ford F350 Dually truck. The suspect left the location without getting out of the truck. That suspect’s description appears similar to the male in the Rustling Elms incident. However, at this time, it is unknown if these two incidents are related.
Anyone with information in either of these cases and the possible identity of the suspect in the composite sketch is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
