Incident at 15240 Galveston Road

July 6, 2006 -- Houston police are investigating the kidnapping of a juvenile female at 15240 Galveston Road about 9:55 p.m. on Wednesday (July 5).

The victim, 12, did not appear to be physically injured but she was taken to Texas Children's Hospital for examination.

HPD Homicide Division Officers K. Carr and A. Mares reported:

The victim went to a grocery store with her mother about 8:30 p.m. and returned home about 8:50 p.m. After having been home for about thirty minutes, the suspect knocked at the door stating he was from the grocery store they had just shopped at. The suspect told the victim's mother that her daughter had stolen some candy from the store. The victim's mother said she was going to call the store to verify the suspect's information so she went to get a pen. When she returned to the front door, the suspect and her daughter were gone.

The mother called the police to report the incident. At about 2:10 a.m. today (July 6), the female victim was found by a Pasadena police officer at a convenience store near the East Sam Houston Parkway South and Red Bluff, where the suspect had dropped her off.

The suspect is described as a white male, possibly Hispanic, in his late 40s to early 50s, wearing a tan button-down shirt, dark pants, and a tan baseball cap. He has dark colored hair and a medium build. The suspect was possibly driving a dark tan sports utility vehicle, similar to a Chevrolet Suburban. The investigation is continuing.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
