HOUSTON – Four armed suspects wearing bandanas walked into the Jack In the Box in northwest Houston Tuesday afternoon and robbed the restaurant and one customer.

According to the Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office, it happened at 12:45 p.m. in the 5400 block of North Shepherd.

“It kind of pisses you off when somebody has a gun in your face. It will make you mad,” said Kirk, a customer.

While Kirk didn’t have the gun in his face, he saw it happen to the others inside just as he was leaving.

“They started putting on gloves and masks and stuff. Started coming in and I just went out the front door and started calling 911,” said Kirk.

Two Harris County Pct. 1 deputy constables happened to be close by.

“They had just completed a traffic stop and then when they were starting to travel, somebody ran out and flagged them down,” said Deputy Constable James Moncrief.

Kirk, also followed behind the suspects, determined to keep them in sight.

“I followed them down the road a little bit. And I thought the cops had them so I turned away,” said Kirk.

He and the others inside the restaurant were shaken up from the incident.

“I’m just glad that nobody got hurt you know what I mean. That’s the blessing,” said Kirk.

KHOU 11 News was getting unconfirmed reports that one person was taken in for questioning, but the unofficial word is that all four suspects are on the loose.
