A Houston man is at large after he reportedly bought a face mask from a convenience store and later allegedly used the mask to rob the store. 

The suspect is accused of walking into the convenience store on July 4, where he reportedly purchased a face mask and stuck around until customers left the store, Fox 26 Houston reports. 

When the clerk left the register to restock items in the front of the story, the suspect then reportedly put on the facemask and drew his gun.
