SUGAR LAND, TX – Sugar Land police are looking for a man who robbed a woman and her mother at gunpoint on Jan. 30.
A 20-year-old woman said she and her 52-year-old mother arrived at a friend’s house in the 1900 block of Magnolia Crest Lane shortly after noon.
They parked near the curb in front of the house and had just exited their vehicle when a man approached them and pointed a gun, according to police. The suspect then took the women’s purses and ran away.
The suspect was said to be in his mid- 20s, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 185 to 200 pounds. He had short hair and was wearing a t-shirt and athletic shoes.
