HCSO: Woman suffers broken arm after armed suspect carjacks her outside NW Harris County retail store

HARRIS COUNTY – A 68-year-old woman suffered a broken arm after she was carjacked by an armed suspect outside a retail store in northwest Harris County Saturday morning, deputies with Harris County Sheriff’s Office said.

According to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, it happened at a shopping center located in the 15900 block of FM 529 near Highway 6.

Gonzalez said an armed suspect approached a 68-year-old adult woman and apparently pushed her to the ground.

The woman suffered a broken arm during the fall.

The suspect drove away in the woman’s blue 2016 Hyundai Tucson with Texas license plate JGP-4190, according to deputies. He is described as a man wearing a hooded sweater and red shorts.

“Beyond angry that anyone could hurt an older adult. Sheriff Gonzalez said on Twitter. All older adults here deserve the right to be safe, and treated with dignity & respect.”

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call HCSO at 713-221-6000 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
