Alleged Robbery Suspect Dropped His Cellphone, Police Need to Identify Him
Houston Police Department Press Release
The Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division needs the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect responsible for a robbery bodily injury.
On Monday, January 16, 2023, at around 8:25 pm, the complainant was meeting a friend at a grocery store parking lot, located at the 10400 block of Jensen, in Houston, Texas. The complainant kept his engine running with the keys still in the ignition, exited his truck and began speaking to his friend, that was in his own vehicle. The complainant then observed an older white Toyota (possibly 1990s) four-door sedan with paper tags parked next to them.
An unknown male then exited the white Toyota sedan from the passenger side and got into the complainant’s driver’s seat. The complainant quickly entered the passenger side of his truck in an attempt to stop the suspect from stealing his truck.
The suspect then assaulted the complainant as he drove off, causing the truck to drive into a ditch and crash. The suspect exited the complainant’s truck, got back into the white sedan, and fled the scene.
The complainant’s truck was then towed in order to be repaired and it was discovered that the suspect had kept his (locked) cell phone in his truck. The phone contained a wallpaper photo of the suspect that committed the robbery.
The complainant’s friend was also able to capture a couple photos of the suspect vehicle as it fled after the robbery.
While the suspect’s cell phone is in the process of being analyzed by Houston Police Robbery Detectives and the investigation is still ongoing, the public’s assistance is still needed in identifying the suspect’s identity.
