HOUSTON — New images released by Houston police Friday show a closer look at the suspects whom investigators said robbed and attacked five people Monday in southeast Houston, stabbing and threatening them at gunpoint.

Detectives discovered video that they say shows one of the attackers before he covered his face and robbed one of the victims. The video also shows a car detectives believe suspects used to get away.

Monday night, two men attacked five others in southeast Houston in a span of five hours. The suspects tried to rob all five. Three victims were stabbed; all were beat up. In at least one of the violent robberies, the suspects took a large sum of cash from the victim.

The attack on one victim outside a convenience store at Griggs and Telephone Road was caught on camera, police said.

Because the robbers got money, ambushed victims from behind and did not give any of them a chance to give up their money and cash before being beaten, investigators worry those suspects will hurt someone else.

The suspects are described as Hispanic males. One was wearing a white shirt; the other was wearing dark-colored clothing.
