CYPRESS — Precinct 4 Constable’s Office investigators have been working around the clock to get the second suspect in the violent aggravated robbery that occurred yesterday (Aug. 17, 2018) in the 23200 block of Hwy 290 identified.

Investigators today were able to identify Travonn Johnson as the suspect that drove up during the robbery in the black Chrysler 300 vehicle, beat both victims, and then ran both victims over with the vehicle. In the video, he was wearing a white shirt and white underwear.

Travonn Johnson has been filed on for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

The other suspect arrested by a Pct. 4 Constable officer at the scene yesterday. Davis Dowell Mitchell was not given bond today and is currently in jail.

“We would encourage Travonn Johnson to turn himself in to law enforcement,” said Pct. 4 Constable Mark Herman. “The teams of law enforcement that are currently looking for him are not helpless citizens, and will approach him as the suspected violent individual he is.”

Investigators have already began to zero in on the other suspects involved in this robbery, according to the constable’s office.

(We notice a discrepancy with Johnson’s first name. We’ll update this story once we know the correct spelling, as it’s spelled two ways in the press release and photo.)
