(KPRC/NBC) - Surveillance video released by Houston police shows a donut shop being robbed, and one of the three thieves handing out some sweet treats.

The strange incident happened just before 3 p.m. on Oct. 16 at the Shipley Do-Nuts in the North Shepherd area of the city.

Three robbers entered the store, one of whom was holding a handgun.

He jumped the counter and demanded money from the cash registers.

A second man then jumped over the counter.

A third man then took two customers' cellphones, while the other two men robbed the employees.

The man then handed the customers doughnuts as the other two robbers were leaving. All three of the robbers then fled the location and are still being sought by police.
