Houston police need help identifying suspect who stabbed and robbed trucking company owner


The Houston Police Department (HPD) is asking for public help in locating a suspect caught on video during an armed robbery at a trucking business earlier this year.

The incident occurred on Tuesday, April 11 at around 7:45 p.m. at a trucking business located at the 8200 block of Penrod, in Houston, Texas.

The trucking company owner was working inside the building when a suspect entered with a handgun and demanded money.

HPD says the suspect struck the owner in the face with the gun, stabbed him in the stomach with a knife, then stole his wallet before fleeing the scene.

The suspect is described as an Hispanic male, around 6’0, medium build, wearing blue jeans, gray hoodie, gray ski mask, and gray hat.

If you have information, you’re asked to call Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
