Carjacking Victim Nearly Run Over As Suspects Flee

The Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division needs the public's assistance identifying the suspects responsible for an aggravated robbery. 

On Saturday, May 7, 2022, at around 4:30 am, the complainant had just parked his vehicle at his apartment complex parking lot, located at the 9800 block of Richmond, in Houston, Texas. The complainant stated that as he exited his vehicle, three unknown males got out of a white Toyota Camry and approached him. The complainant stated that the males suddenly started to attack him by kicking and punching him numerous times throughout his body. During the attack, the complainant stated that the suspects went through his pockets and removed his wallet, keys and cell phone. 

Two of the suspects then ran back to the white Toyota Camry as the third suspect got into the complainant’s vehicle and drove towards a dead end in the apartment complex. The suspects then turned the vehicles around and drove towards the complainant, who attempted to stop the suspects from leaving. The complainant then got on the hood of the white Toyota Camry as the suspects sped through the parking lot trying to force the complainant off the hood. The complainant then fell off the hood and the suspects drove out of the apartment complex.
