Houston authorities released surveillance video this week showing a violent Waffle House stickup in which a trio of masked armed burglars break into the dining establishment and required consumers to the flooring.
The video catches the traumatic July 23 burglary that left those at the dining establishment shaken, according to reports.
At one point among the goons is seen holding a pistol at a man’s head as he forces him out of a booth and onto the ground, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The consumer is seen moving what seems his cellular phone and wallet across the flooring to the burglar, who packs the products in his pockets.
” They pointed the firearms at us and they informed us ‘Get on the ground,'” KTRK-TV estimated one of the victims as stating.”[The men said] ‘ we require phones, we need your wallets, we need everything.’ What felt like 10 minutes was really only a 2 to five-minute ordeal before the 3 men were currently gone.”
Houston authorities stated that after robbing the customers, the burglars required the supervisor to open the cash register and took the cash inside.
” They’re all coming from a white pickup,” Sgt. Tony Mora said, according to the station. “So, if you recognize somebody that fits that description and has the very same sort of automobile, it’s an older model pickup, that’s something we can use.”
Crime Stoppers published a $5,000 reward for tips.
