Houston police have arrested two suspects in connection with a carjacking at an area gas station late last month.
Houston Police Department spokesperson Kese Smith said the suspects, both juvenile males, were arrested Monday afternoon on robbery charges and remanded to the Harris County Juvenile Probation authorities.
According to HPD, the victim, an elderly woman, was pumping gas at the Chevron station at 3301 Pinemont Dr. around 1 a.m. Sept. 23 when she said two black males suddenly walked up the sidewalk before rushing her. In trying to flee, police said the woman fell to the ground as one of the suspects screamed for her keys, subsequently striking her several times.
After grabbing her keys, police say the suspects fled in her truck, which was later found abandoned in the 1200 block of West Tidwell Road.
