HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – Deputies were searching for five men who held up workers and customers inside a northwest Harris County restaurant during lunchtime on Wednesday.

The entire incident was captured on surveillance video from the neighboring pizza restaurant, Winner’s Pizza.

Two of the men were armed while three others served as lookouts, witnesses said.

It happened before 1 p.m. at the Aroy Thai Cuisine in the 7200 block of Fairbanks N Houston Road.

Witnesses said the men came in with guns drawn. They approached two customers and robbed them and also took cash from the restaurant’s register.

The men, who may be teenagers, also robbed the Winner’s Pizza before fleeing the scene. All of the suspects were wearing masks.

“I was really scared, I had the guns pointed to me and they say, ‘bring all the money.’ I told them the drawer is right there,” said Sukhdeep Padda, a worker at the pizza restaurant.

No injuries were reported.
