CYPRESS — On August 17, 2018, a deputy with Constable Mark Herman’s Office was on patrol in the 23200 block of US 290 and observed several citizens struggling with a male suspect on the ground in a parking lot. The Constable Deputy quickly responded and apprehended the suspect. The suspect, later identified as Davis Mitchell attempted to rob a victim.

Further investigation revealed the victim had just withdrew $75,000.00 from a local bank and was followed by a group of suspects to her location. Video surveillance indicated the victim exited her vehicle and a black male suspect attempted to steal her purse. The victim fought hard and refused to give up her purse containing the money. The victim’s husband observed the struggle and physically engaged the suspect.

During the robbery, a black Chrysler 300 drove up to the location and a black male suspect exited the vehicle and began to assault the victims.

The second suspect then fled the location in his vehicle after running over the victims. The female victim was transported to a local hospital in critical condition.

The investigation to identify the second suspect continues.

“Davis Mitchell was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail, charges for Aggravated Robbery with a Deadly Weapon are currently being filed,” said Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman. “If you have any information regarding the unidentified suspect in this case, you are urged to contact our dispatch or your local law enforcement.”

During a press conference, Herman explained that the would-be thieves failed to steal the cash.
