Houston police say armed robbers sexually assaulted and robbed employee of Exotic Adult Superstore Thursday morning. Police arrested one man in the incident that took place at Exotic Adult Superstore located at 15803 Highway 59, and are still looking for three more suspects.

The robbery was reported just after 3 a.m. when four armed male suspects entered the 24 Hour Exotic Adult Superstore. According to police, the armed gunmen disarmed the security guard on duty and took the keys to their vehicles.

The four men demanded cash from the employee while two of the other gunmen sexually assaulted her, according to police. Luckily the employee who has not been identified, set off the Exotic Adult Superstore panic alarm causing the men to run out the back door of the building. The armed gunmen fled the scene in the security guard’s vehicle.

Police began a pursuit of the robbers, who fled southbound on highway 59. Police say that the chase ended on Highway 59 at Aldine Mail Route Road after the suspects’ car lost control and struck a cement column under the freeway.

All four suspects ran from the scene but police were able to catch one of them. Tthe other three are still at large at this time. No charges have been filed at this time against the suspect who is in custody. Police are hoping that the suspect will lead them to the remaining three armed and dangerous men. The Exotic Adult Superstore employee was taken to the hospital to be evaluated.

On behalf of the staff and management of JRL CHARTS, we wish the employee a speedy recovery and adult stores nationwide, please make sure that all security measures are in place as we have seen an uptick in armed robberies over the past 6 months of 2018.
