Houston police are searching for two suspects who held a couple at gunpoint outside an area apartment complex Sunday night. Nobody was hurt in the incident.
According to Houston Police Department spokesperson Victor Senties, a husband and wife answered a knock on their door shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday at the Candlelight Gardens Apartments to find a black male with dreadlocks and a Hispanic male standing outside.
Just seconds later, Senties said the black male pulled a gun from his backpack and immediately demanded personal items under threat of harm to both. Around the same time, Senties said a maintenance worker happened to be making his way up the stairs, and the black male turned the gun on him before both suspects took off on foot.
Witnesses say both suspects then climbed into a silver Honda before fleeing the scene in an unknown direction.
“There were no shots fired. Thankfully nobody was assaulted,” Senties said. “We’re classifying it as an aggravated assault due to the fact that a weapon was pointed more than anything else.”
Anyone with information on this incident or the two suspects is encouraged to call the Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-521-4600.
