New iPhone Craze Sparks Armed Robbery

Two men are robbed at gunpoint while camping out for new iPhones at the AT&T store in southwest Houston. 

 

It happened at the store located on Westheimer at Chimney Rock.  Two gunmen jumped out of a car demanding their victims’ possessions.  They escaped with cell phones, tablets and wallets.

 

A stolen credit card was used minutes later at a Bellaire gas station.

 

Police are hoping to get a description of the suspects from surveillance cameras.  The victims were the first customers inside the AT&T store when it opened at 8am Friday; they both received free phones.
