Houston police needs your help in identifying a man who was seen on surveillance footage ripping over $200 in cash out of a woman's hands as she was paying at a convenience store.
It all went down shortly after 11 a.m. on August 1 at a convenience store on Lockwood, according to KHOU. Surveillance video shows a man wearing a black Calvin Klein sweater, jeans and baseball cap walking into the store and approaching the cash register, which used a plastic barrier to shield employees from customers. A woman at the counter was counting cash in her wallet when the suspect reached over and swiped the money from her hands. He's seen swiftly walking out of the store to his vehicle outside — a 2012 or 2017 Hyundai Accent hatchback — which is parked at the gas pump. He is then seen driving away.
