The Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division needs help identifying four suspects responsible for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

According to the department, the incident occurred the afternoon of Thursday, Jan. 7 in Houston.

The victim told authorities he was followed on US 59 near Tidwell by an unmarked white truck with red and blue strobe lights on in the dash; however, noticed the truck was occupied by four males and did not believe they were police officers.

The truck continued to pursue the victim and attempted to pull him over as he eventually exited the freeway at Parker and entered a neighborhood.

The victim was followed onto the 3100 block of Orlando Street where the truck cut him off, causing him to stop.

According to the department, the driver exited the truck and attempted to rob the victim at gunpoint.

The victim was able to accelerate around the truck and get away; however, his vehicle was struck six times before the suspect returned to the truck and fled the scene.

A home surveillance camera captured the suspect’s vehicle moments before the incident.

According to the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division, the suspects are described as four Hispanic males.

The department is seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspects.

Anyone with information is urged to directly contact Crime Stoppers of Houston.
