KATY — Constable Ted Heap announced today the arrest of three juvenile suspects responsible for a series of aggravated robberies, carjackings and thefts over the last several months in Southwest Houston.
In many cases, these suspects targeted senior citizens in the community.
Constable Heap’s Criminal Investigations Division, working with Precinct 5’s patrol officers, arrested two of the juveniles, ages 11 and 12, on Sunday, September 16. Another 14-year-old suspect was apprehended on Monday, September 17.
These juveniles were arrested for their recent attack on a 76-year-old man out for his evening walk on September 9. The juveniles beat the victim with his own walking stick, then pointed a gun at him and demanded money before running off. The victim was bruised and suffered a laceration to his head in the attack.
Precinct 5 investigators are looking into whether this group of juveniles may be connected to as many as 26 robberies and thefts reported in the area since May 2018. The investigation is ongoing and may lead to further arrests.
