Houston police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a man who robbed a woman while wielding a knife last month at the new H-E-B.
According to the Houston Police Department, which released surveillance video of the crime, the victim had just parked in the H-E-B garage at 2300 N. Shepherd Dr. shortly after 8 p.m. May 12 when a black Dodge Ram pickup truck parked behind her to block her in. The driver then got out and approached the woman’s vehicle as she was trying to step out, taking her purse and making a motion with the knife as if he were going to stab her. The man then went back to his truck with the purse and fled the scene.
HPD described the suspect as a Hispanic male between 17-25 years old, between 5-foot-6 and 5-8 and between 140 and 160 pounds. He has black hair and was wearing a black shirt and black pants at the time of the robbery.
Crime Stoppers may pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and/or arrest of the suspect. Information may be reported by calling 713-222-8477 or visiting www.crime-stoppers.org.
