Houston man accused of beating, robbing 68-year-old charged after being recognized by KPRC 2 viewer

HOUSTON – A KPRC 2 viewer helped police identify a suspect seen on surveillance video taking items out of a 68-year-old disabled man’s garage before beating him.

According to court documents, Christopher Mouton was arrested after the viewer told deputies his vehicle looked familiar.

Mouton was caught on camera multiple times burglarizing the home of Stan Burge in northwest Houston last week.

On the last visit Mouton took to the home, Burge said he heard something in the garage that woke him out his sleep.

Burge says he then confronted Mouton and put up a fight.

“I wasn’t going to let myself be afraid of him,” Burge said. “Once I saw a person in there, I took him down.”

During the investigation, deputies called Mouton who voluntarily agreed to meet with law enforcement officials and return some of Burge’s belongings.

Investigators say during the meeting, Mouton provided ‘intimate details’ about the case that only someone involved in the crime would know, and gave a “full confession to admitting this aggravated robbery.”

That conversation was being filmed by an officer’s body-worn camera.

Mouton has since been charged with aggravated robbery.

Additionally, court records state Mouton was arrested back in 2006 and convicted of burglary of a habitation in Harris County, which was listed as a felony.
