Lufkin Police need the public's help to identify a man who robbed a video game store in June.

It happened just before closing time on June 21, 2013, at the GameXchange store on South Medford Dr. in Lufkin.

Surveillance video captured a man browsing through the store and asking the employees about some of the merchandise.

When the last customer left the store, the robber and two employees were left alone.

That's when the robber selected a game from a shelf and walked to the check-out counter.

As one of the employees processed the man's purchase, the robber displayed a handgun and ordered the employees to hand over all of the money from the cash registers.

The employees complied with the robber's orders, and then the robber forced them into a back room of the store at gunpoint before leaving the building through the back door.

The store's security cameras captured the robbery and show that the robber was wearing black jogging pants, possibly Adidas brand, a black long-sleeve t-shirt, and a black hat with what appears to be a Chicago Bears logo.

The employees described the robber as a white male, about 5'10'' tall in his twenties.

You never have to give your name and Crime Stoppers may pay a cash reward for information that leads to an arrest related to this crime.
