Suspect Captured on Camera Phone after Home Invasion


The Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division need the public's assistance identifying the suspects responsible for an Aggravated Robbery (Home Invasion).

On February 4th, 2021, the Complainant, a 16 year old male, was at home taking virtual classes for school when he heard a loud noise from downstairs. The complainant went downstairs to see what had fallen when he was confronted by a black male wearing all black with a gun. The suspect demanded money and property, then used zip ties to tie the complainant’s hands together and forced him to lay down. The complainant stated the suspect started talking in Spanish and believes he heard 3 male voices in total but did not see them. The suspect who was holding the gun then pulls the cord from the Television and uses it to tie his sister up. The suspects go through the house looking for money and property. Around this time, the front neighbor felt something was wrong so he went to check on the teens. The neighbor confronts one of the suspects as he is exiting and begins to record him, asking him what he was doing inside the house. The neighbor, at the time, didn’t know what was happening or that the teens were tied up. The suspect continues to walk away from the residence and sprints into a black Chevy Traverse that picks him up. Our Robbery Detectives arrived on scene and were able to retrieve surveillance video along with the cell phone video the neighbor recorded. Houston PD #0164241-21

The Houston Police Robbery Division is currently seeking the identity of the male captured in the video, who is believed to be one of the Robbery-Home Invasion suspects in this case.
