Male Forcibly Takes Females Purse Inside Parking Garage

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

On Sunday, May 12, 2019 at 8:12 pm, the complainant had just parked her vehicle in an HEB parking garage, located at 2300 North Shepherd, in Houston, Texas.  As she was exiting her vehicle, a newer model black Ram truck parked right behind her, blocking her vehicle. An unknown male then jumped out of the driver's seat and quickly approached her vehicle while holding a knife. The complainant tried to close her door, but the male forced it open and pulled the purse from her arm, causing pain. At one point, the male made a motion as if he were going to try to stab the female, but then turned away. The suspect then got back into the truck with her purse and fled the scene. HPD case #599435-19
