Security Guard Experiences Tough Day on the Job

Crime Stoppers and the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division need the public's assistance identifying the suspects responsible for an aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

On Sunday, June 17, 2018 at 5:35 am, the complainant was working as a security guard at an apartment complex located at 2400 McCue Road, in Houston, Texas. The complainant stated that he observed two unknown Hispanic males walking around in the parking lot and noticed that they had separated. As the complainant followed one of the males, he observed the other male getting into his vehicle, at which time he ran towards his vehicle with the suspect in the driver’s seat. The male in the complainant’s vehicle was able to start it and began to drive towards the exit gate. The complainant attempted to open the driver’s door of his vehicle while it was moving, at which time the suspect attempted to run him over.

Meanwhile, the other male got into a tan Chevrolet truck had driven towards the exit gate, waiting for it to open. The complainant then focused his attention towards the male in the truck, who then pointed a handgun at him while waiting for the gate to open. As the suspect in the truck was leaving, the suspect in the complainant’s vehicle then attempted to also exit through the gate. The complainant then stood in front of his vehicle in an attempt to stop the suspect from leaving. The suspect then attempted to run over the security guard and was able to flee the scene.

During a follow up investigation by Houston Police Detectives, it was discovered that the Chevrolet truck entered the parking lot prior to this incident with both males and the license plates on the truck were listed as stolen. The complainant’s vehicle was located the following day at 2530 Yorktown. HPD case #770391-18
