An elderly couple was robbed after they reportedly refused to give a man $5 for gas money.

Police say that on Thursday around 7:50 p.m. a couple went out for an evening stroll in their neighborhood on Candlelight Lane in northwest Houston, when they were approached by the suspect.

A male standing about 6’1 between the ages of 18-21, allegedly approached the couple and asked for some money, but when the couple refused and kept walking the suspect pulled a gun and took whatever money they had.

The suspect was wearing a hooded jacket with a large light and dark plaid pattern.

Investigators believe the suspect may frequent the basketball courts at nearby Candlelight Park since he was walking from that location.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information called in to the 713-222-8477 tips hotline or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org that leads to the identification, arrest and charging of any suspect in this case. All tipsters remain anonymous.
