Suspect Tries to Gain Access Into Home After Car-Jacking

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 Monday, March 30, 2020 at 8:25 pm, the complainants (mother and daughter) had been walking along a trail and started to walk back to their vehicle at the 4000 block of Simsbrook Drive, in Houston, Texas. The complainants walked past an unknown male, who was sitting on the ground near the trail. The male then stood up and walked past the complainants and then turned around and approached them. The male pointed a gray and black pistol at the complainants and demanded their cell phones and the keys to the vehicle. The complainants complied with the suspect's demands and he then told them to lay on the ground. Once the complainants were on the ground, the suspect got into their vehicle and drove away.

Houston police officers responded to the scene and while enroute, observed the complainants vehicle with the suspect driving. Officers activated their emergency equipment in an attempt to stop the vehicle. The suspect then led officers on a short pursuit until he crashed through a fence at Hobby Elementary School, located at 13200 White Heather. The suspect then fled the location on foot and while officers searched the area around the school, the suspect had managed to make his way to nearby homes, where he attempted to gain access into a home by telling the homeowner via a Ring doorbell that he had just been robbed and needed help. The homeowner refused to open her door, at which time the suspect fled in an unknown location. Houston PD #426461-20

Suspect description: Hispanic male, 18 to 24 years old, 5’4 to 5’5, heavy build.
