Multiple suspects remain on the run after allegedly robbing a Shepherd Forest woman at gunpoint last week.
Houston Police Department spokesperson Jodi Silva said officers responded to a call in the 4300 block of Marlborough Drive at 6:30 p.m. April 22, when a woman told police she was held up in her driveway by two armed black men wearing ski masks.
The woman was alone, according to Silva, and was unharmed.
“She was sitting in her car, and then was approached by the suspects. They demanded her purse and then her vehicle,” Silva said. “She didn’t think much of the maroon sedan they got out of, until the next thing she knows they’re knocking on her windows with guns.”
According to Silva, the suspects made away with the woman’s white 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee and fled the scene. The next day, however, Silva said the woman told police a neighbor recovered her wallet about a block away, with only a work ID card missing.
The victim’s Grand Cherokee was then found crashed in the 6000 block of Oak Bay Drive – about five miles from the scene – around 10:30 p.m. April 24.
“The best we can tell, they hit a tree or a fence, then a witness said he saw four suspects flee on foot,” Silva said.
