Crime Stoppers and the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division need the public's assistance identifying the suspect(s) responsible for a robbery with bodily force.
On Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at around 5:33 pm, an unknown black male entered the Sears, located at 4000 North Shepherd, in Houston, Texas. The male placed several items in a shopping cart from within the store and then pushed the shopping cart out of the store without making any attempts to pay for them. A loss prevention officer witnessed the incident and attempted to stop the suspect outside the store. The male suspect then assaulted the loss prevention officer, but was unable to get away with the stolen items. The suspect fled the scene in a beige or gold colored Toyota Corolla, which was being driven by a black female. The suspects vehicle is believed to be connected to five other shoplifting thefts, this one being a robbery since the loss prevention officer was assaulted during the commission of a theft, resulting in this case being a felony. HPD case #653585-18
Suspect description: Suspect #1: Black male, 30 to 35 years old, 5’10 to 6’00, 170 to 190 pounds, black hair.
