March 18, 2015 - Houston police are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect or suspects believed responsible for at least three robberies in northwest Houston since February.
The unknown suspect(s) were last seen in a black Pontiac Grand Am with no license plates. Surveillance photos of the suspect vehicle are attached to this news release.
The vehicle is involved in the following incidents:
- Walmart at 13484 Northwest Freeway on February 2.
- Walmart at 10750 Westview on February 21
- Walmart at 10750 Westview on March 1
In each incident, the suspect(s) drive up to the victim, an elderly female, as she walks to her vehicle in the parking lot. The suspect then leans out of the driver's side window and steals the victim's purse. In two of the robberies, the victim was dragged to the ground as the suspect vehicle fled the scene. Those victims suffered minor injuries.
Anyone with information in these cases is urged to contact the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
