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.
