HOUSTON – The Houston Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect who held up a Game Stop store on Westheimer.

HPD on Thursday released surveillance photos of the suspect, described as a black male, 35 to 40 years old, about 5-feet-9 and 200 pounds. He was wearing eye glasses and a mechanic’s style shirt at the time.

Police said the man went into the Game Stop video game store in the 11800-block of Westheimer Road around 11:55 a.m. on Sept. 17 and started to make a purchase. When the clerk opened the register, police said the man displayed a pistol and demanded the clerk hand over all the cash.

The suspect left the scene, but his method of transportation was not seen.

Anyone with information on the identity of the wanted suspect in this case is urged to contact the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
