SUGAR LAND, Texas – Police have released sketches of two suspects who robbed a Sugar Land Pizza Hut over the weekend.
The armed robbers barged into the restaurant at 3638 State Highway 6 around 11 p.m. Sunday.
They pointed guns at employees, jumped the counter and demanded money from the safe.
The workers were unable to open the safe, so the gunmen took money from the cash register.
Before fleeing, they forced the employees into a bathroom and ordered them to stay there.
A witness later told police that two men matching the gunmen’s description were seen running through bushes at the Foundations at Edgewater Apartments at 2222 Settlers Way.
One of the men was black, 30 to 40 years old and about 6 feet tall. He was wearing black pants, a black shirt, a black hat and glasses.
The other man was black, in his early 20s and about 5 feet 9 inches tall. He was wearing khaki shorts or pants. He also had a thin beard that included sideburns that continued down his jaw line to his chin.
Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at 281-275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS(8477).
