The Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division needs the public's assistance identifying the suspect responsible for an aggravated robbery (elderly).
On Thursday, July 29, 2021 at around 4:00 pm, the complainant had just returned home to his apartment complex at the 3200 block of Tidwell, in Houston, Texas. The complainant stated that he was approached from behind by an unknown male, who began reaching into his pocket. The complainant then turned around and attempted to push the suspect back, but fell when he let go of his walker since he is unable to stand on his own. When the complainant fell to the ground, the suspect then went through his pockets attempting to find his money. The suspect then went through the complainant’s property in his walker and located cash in an envelope. The suspect then threw the walker at a witness, who attempted to stop the suspect. The suspect then fled the scene in a black SUV, possibly an older model Chevrolet Tahoe. Houston PD #1021184-21
Note: Before the incident, the complainant had cashed a check at a bank located at the East Freeway (I10) and Federal Road. The complainant stated that he believes that he was followed by the suspect(s) back to his residence since the suspect was looking for the envelope that contained his cash.
Suspect description: Black male, 25 to 30 years, 5’10 to 5’11, 190 pounds, dark complexion, yellow vest.
