On Monday, March 9, 2020 at around 1:00 pm, the complainant was returning to work at the CRU Food and Wine Bar, located at 2800 Kirby. The complainant had just completed a bank run at the Bank of Texas, located at 5500 Kirby. The complainant parked his vehicle in the basement parking lot and was walking up the escalators when a male holding what appeared to be a gun, suddenly approached from behind him. The suspect discharged the weapon at the complainant, at which time he realized that it was a Taser (complainant was struck in the back with one dart while the second dart missed). The suspect then began running up the escalators while demanding the complainant’s bank bag as the complainant started yelling for help, which caught the attention of a security guard. The security guard then ran towards the commotion, causing the suspect to run back towards his vehicle, described as a red four-door sedan, possibly a Chevrolet Impala, and then fled the scene.
