Police Impersonators Try to Pull Over Victim on Freeway

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

On Thursday, January 7, 2020 at around 12:45 pm, the complainant was driving his vehicle northbound on US 59 near Tidwell, in Houston, Texas. The complainant stated that he looked in his rear view mirror and noticed a white truck behind him with red and blue strobe lights on in the dash. The complainant stated that he also noticed that the truck was occupied by four males and did not believe that the occupants were police officers. The complainant stated that he then continued to drive and eventually exited Parker, at which time the truck continued to follow him, attempting to pull him over. The complainant then turned onto the 3100 block of Orlando as the truck drove around his vehicle and cut him off, causing him to stop. The driver of the truck then exited the vehicle while pointing a gun at him, trying to rob him, so the complainant accelerated around the truck in an attempt to get away. The suspect then fired several rounds at the complainant, striking his vehicle six times. The suspect then got back into the truck, backed up on Orlando Street, and then fled the scene. Houston PD #29874-21 

The suspect’s vehicle was captured on a home surveillance camera just moments before the incident occurred, but did not capture the actual incident. 

Suspect description: Four Hispanic males
