Adam & Eve Adult Store in Houston fell victim to a robbery that took place on Wednesday May 2. According to Houston Police Department’s Robbery  division, the two men targeted the adult store in an attempt to shop lift but it quickly turned into another situation.

Police say two men entered the Adam and Eve Adult Store located at 1111 Westheimer Road at 11:20 p.m. At first, the suspects pretended to be patrons by picking up several items around the store. The employee of the Adam & Eve Adult Store recognized one of the suspects who had allegedly shoplifted in the adult store in the past so she decided to keep an eye on them and positioned herself near the front door to make sure they didn’t try to run out with merchandise.

The surveillance video taken from the Adam & Eve Adult Store shows one of the suspects trying to walk out the store but was confronted by the employee. The shoplifter then pushed the employee out of the way and walked out of the store followed by the second suspect who exited the store with merchandise.

The employee quickly got herself together and used her cell phone to record video as the suspects got into a car with a getaway driver who took off in a tan Ram 1500. Authorities supplied the following details on the two male suspects:

Suspect #1: Black male, 35-40 years old, 5’9″ to 5’11”, 140 to 160 pounds, black hair, lime green shirt
Suspect #2: Black male, 30 to 35 years old, 6’2″ to 6’3″, 200 to 210 pounds, black hair, red shirt
