The aggravated robbery was reported on Feb. 11 at 2:50 p.m. outside a home, located in the 10200 block of Briar Forest Drive, in west Houston.
Police said as a 72-year-old woman was putting something in her truck in her home’s garage, she was approached from behind by a masked gunman. The suspect pointed a handgun at her and demanded her car keys.
