HOUSTON—Surveillance video captured a robbery at a Cricket cell phone store Monday afternoon in the 1100 block of Broadway.
The video shows a man in an orange cap pretending to be a customer, then within seconds he’s behind the counter threatening the woman who works there.
“Well, I never thought this was going to happen to me,” the woman said. “I’m very young. I have a life ahead of me. And he’s young too so he should work.”
The man got away with about $700.
No one was injured.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Houston Police Department.
HPD recently set up a task force to solve the rising number of cell phone store robberies.
