SUGAR LAND -

Police have released a sketch of the suspect who tried to steal a car that he couldn’t drive.

Sugar Land police said a 58-year-old man was approached by a teen that had a gun on May 26 at a lake in the 14200 block of the Southwest Freeway near Sugar Creek Center Boulevard.

The man told police the suspect demanded his keys, but couldn’t operate the car because of the manual transmission.  The suspect then ordered the victim to drive him to Stafford, where the suspect got out of the car near Wright Road and Kirkwood Drive. 

The victim then drove to a nearby gas station and flagged down a Stafford police officer.  

Sugar Land police describe the suspect as Black, 16 to 17 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a thin build and short hair.  He was last seen wearing black pants, a red hoodie and blue latex gloves.
