Suspect Experiences a Series of Bad Luck in Robberies

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 Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at around noon, the complainant was getting his car washed at the 5700 block of Westheimer, in Houston, Texas. The complainant stated that he was approached by an unknown male in the car wash waiting area, who pointed a gun at him and demanded his money. The complainant explained to the suspect that his money was in his Rolls Royce, at which time the suspect grabbed the complainant by the shirt and escorted him to his vehicle. The suspect then reached into the complainants Rolls Royce, grabbed a moneybag, and then ran to his vehicle (white Ford Explorer) and sped out of the parking lot. The complainant got into his vehicle (Rolls Royce) and followed the Ford Explorer. The suspect then crashed his vehicle into a light pole at the 5700 block of San Felipe. 

The suspect exited his (wrecked) white Ford Explorer while holding his gun in his hand and accidently shot himself in the arm. The suspect then ran through a parking lot (captured on camera) to a loading dock, where a second complainant was sitting in his black Ford F-350. The suspect walked up to the complainant (captured on camera), pointed his gun at him, and forced him to get out of his truck. The suspect got into the complainants truck and quickly sped out of the parking lot.

As the suspect was fleeing in the complainants black Ford F-350 truck, he drove over some concrete barriers at 5599 San Felipe and then struck a white Lexus sedan as it was exiting the parking lot. The suspect then exited the damaged black Ford F-350 and ran to a third complainant, who was sitting in a parking lot in her white Ford F-150 while waiting for a friend. The suspect pointed his handgun at the third complainant, forced her out of her truck, and then fled the scene. The white Ford F-150 was located a short while later at an apartment complex at the 6400 block of Westheimer. 

According to a witness at the apartment complex, the suspect ran up to her asking for help. The suspect was bleeding from the mouth and from his left arm, which appeared to have been shot because it was "just dangling.” The suspect then ran off into an unknown direction. 

As of September 17, the suspect had not checked into any local hospitals, but was injured in the incident when he shot himself in the arm. Houston PD #1224000-20
