Houston Crime: 2 masked men caught on video robbing short-of-home barber shop on Lenora at gunpoint

HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — Police are looking for two suspects accused of robbing a southeast Houston hair salon at gunpoint, and it’s all been caught on camera.

The aggravated robbery occurred on June 22 at approximately 7:50 p.m. at a house in the 8100 block of Lenora Street.

Houston police released security video of the incident on Tuesday. You can watch the footage in the video player above.

Police say the victim temporarily moved his hair salon out of his residence after his business burned down. She only allowed a few customers into her house so she could continue doing her hair.

The woman told police she was expecting a friend to arrive, so she left the back door unlocked so they could gain access to her back door.

When the woman opened the door after hearing a knock, two masked men, one armed with a handgun, forced their way inside, police said.

One of the suspects immediately went to get the cash drawer, while the other searched the woman’s pockets for cash.

“OK. OK. That’s it. That’s it. I haven’t (anymore),” the woman can be heard telling the suspects. “Please. Please. I have nothing. Trust me.”

After stealing the cash drawer, they fled the house in an unknown direction, police said.

Police describe the suspects as black males between the ages of 19 and 22 wearing black pants. A suspect was wearing a black hooded coat with graphics on the front and red sandals at the time of the robbery. The second suspect was wearing red and white shoes and a blue hooded jacket.
