Dallas Police are looking for three people — a black woman and two black men, all likely teenagers or in their early 20s — who they say used mace to rob a neighborhood area 7-11 Monday.

The suspects are featured in the above video.

The trio is seen in the surveillance video waiting in line behind a customer at a Northwest Highway-Jupiter 7-11 for a few seconds. A young man wearing a black Nike T-shirt hands a bill to the young woman, dressed in a red Michael Jordan T-shirt and what appears to be a red shower cap or bonnet with a lacy ivory band and hoop earrings, who proceeds to make a purchase.

As soon as the clerk opens the cash drawer, one of the off-camera suspects sprays mace into his eyes, the worker told police. As the injured clerk backs away, covering his face, the woman lunges across the counter and grabs a fistful of cash from the till.

All three suspects fled in a silver sedan, say police, who are still searching for them.

The third suspect was dressed in a black shirt with camouflage shorts and bandana. The two male suspects are estimated at about 5 foot 10 inches tall, and the female is about 5 foot 4 inches.


If you recognize these people or know anything about this incident, please contact Dallas police detective D. Edberson at 214.671.3626. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 214.373.TIPS (8477).
