GALVESTON, Texas -- A man who police say is a person of interest in the death of a Galveston bakery owner faced a judge overnight.

Harold Norwood, 41, was arrested in Houston over the weekend on an aggravated assault charge in a different case.

The bond for Norwood was initially set at $30,000, but in court early Monday a judge took away the bond entirely, saying Norwood is a suspect in other felonies.

Galveston police said Norwood is a person of interest in the murder of Juan Navarro, a local baker. Norwood was reportedly seen driving Navarro's SUV following the murder, but he has not been charged in the crime.

Norwood faces a felony charge for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, police said.

Galveston police said they plan to question him while he’s in jail on the charges.

The murder victim was the owner of Panaderia Navarro. Navarro was assaulted, and his vehicle was stolen from his business in the 3800-block of Broadway. He later died at the hospital.

The Galveston Police Department is seeking any information about the case. Anyone with information is asked to contact GPD at 409-765-3702 or Crime Stoppers at 409-763-tips (8477).
