PASADENA, Texas -

Two masked men robbed a convenience store at gunpoint, and it was all caught on camera.

Allan Alvarez said he was about to close up the Quicky Mart in the 2400 block of Beltway 8 in Pasadena about 10:45 p.m. on Oct. 1 when two men stormed into the store and put a gun in his face.

Alvarez said one of the men covered his face with a green bandanna and the other wore a Halloween mask.

"He just asked me to put the money in a bag," Alvarez said. "I just put my hand up and I give them the register."

Alvarez, 27, said he did not put up a fight. He decided to just let the armed men take what they want.

"The only thing I told them was don't do nothing. Just don't shoot because I have a family," he said.

Alvarez said he works two jobs and six days a week to support his wife and 8-month-old daughter. He said he realizes that the men could have killed them if they wanted to.

"When you work with money, that's the risk," Alvarez said.

Pasadena police said the men took the money in the register plus about $1,000 worth of lottery tickets, investigators said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
