HOUSTON – The Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division released a video Tuesday of an aggravated robbery targeting a Houston resident returning home from a jewelry store.

According to the police, the incident occurred on Thursday, Dec. 17 at around 2:00 p.m. when the resident was being dropped off at home by an Uber after shopping at a jewelry store in the 6200 block of Richmond Avenue.

A video captured on a doorbell camera across the street shows a black Dodge Charger pulling up near the driveway as the resident was arriving home at the 2000 block of Cohn.

According to police, the resident said he noticed two occupants in the vehicle putting masks over their heads and that he then tried to run into his house.

The video shows the armed suspects, one with an assault rifle and the other with a handgun, chasing the resident into his garage then causing him to fall to the ground after striking him in the head multiple times.

The suspects then robbed the resident of a bag that he was holding along with the jewelry that he was wearing and fled the scene. Police say the men also got away with $3,000, a few credit cards and the victim’s wallet.

The Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects seen in the video.
