HOUSTON – Bellaire police are hoping the public can help them track down a suspect in an armed robbery.

Investigators said it happened around 7:47 p.m. on February 21, 2011, at the Rice Discount Liquor store in the 5100 block of Bissonnet.

The suspect reportedly entered the store, jumped over the counter and demanded money from the cashier.

At some point during the robbery, police said the suspect struck the victim twice in the head with a pistol.

The suspect fled the area on foot.

Police said since he was wearing a mask, they were unable to come up with a composite sketch from surveillance video.

But investigators later found an employee of a nearby business who said they saw the suspect prior to the robbery.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477 or Bellaire police at 713-668-0487.
