WEST UNIVERSITY PLACE, Texas – Crime Stoppers and West U PD investigators are hoping the public can help identify three robbery suspects who took over an electronics store on July 22, 2012.

It happened around 1:50 p.m. at a store in the 5800 block of Kirby.

Police said the three suspects – two of whom were holding pistols – barged into the store and announced that they were robbing the place.

Meanwhile, one of the victims inside the store called 911 and whispered, "robbery in progress."

Police said the suspects locked the door to the store and herded all of the customers into a back room.

While one suspects cleaned out the register, the other two demanded cash and valuables from the customers and employees.

After the robbery, the suspects fled through a back security door into an alley behind the shopping center.

A witness reported seeing the suspects leave the scene in a tan-colored vehicle that was parked nearby.

The suspects were caught by surveillance cameras during the robbery. The video is posted below.

A cash reward of up to $5,000 is available for information leading to an arrest in this case.

If you have a tip, call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.

Tips can also be submitted online at crime-stoppers.org or via text – just text "TIP610" plus your info to 274637.
