Caught on camera: Suspected carjackers crash stolen pickup in southeast Houston

A pair of carjacking suspects were caught on camera crashing a pickup truck they had just stolen moments before in southeast Houston in late September.

The two suspects stole the truck from a woman at a gas station in the 5700 block of Telephone Road around 4 p.m. Sept. 27, according to police. They were armed with a knife, pressed it up against her throat and demanded she hand over her keys, police said.

The video, released by Houston Police Department robbery investigators Thursday, shows the two suspects in the truck speeding down a small residential street in the 6000 block of Sunridge, losing control and fishtailing into a light pole. The duo spilled out of the damaged truck and fled on foot, the video shows.

The first suspect is described as a Hispanic male who was wearing a black shirt, black pants and white shoes at the time of the robbery. The second suspect is described as a Hispanic male who was wearing a white shirt and black shorts.

Anyone who recognizes the two is urged to call Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
