HOUSTON Investigators with the Houston Police Department are hoping surveillance video will lead them to a suspect who robbed and stabbed a man in October.
The victim told police he was waiting at a METRO bus stop when two suspects forced him into a car, then drove him to a Wells Fargo Bank in the 2700 block of Smith Street on October 10.
Before they went to the bank, the suspects pulled off somewhere to buy crack cocaine, the victim said.
When they finally arrived at the ATM, one suspect allegedly threatened the man with a knife and told him to withdraw money.
The victim tried to trick the suspect and put in a grocery card, instead. That apparently angered the suspect, who then pulled out a knife and began stabbing the victim, according to police.
Witnesses overheard the suspect yelling that he was going to kill the victim.
After the stabbing, the suspects fled in a four-door, 90s model, possibly gold Mercury Grand Marquis, leaving the victim in pool of blood in the drive-through.
The victim was transported by paramedics to Memorial Hermann Hospital with severe wounds, but survived the attack.
One suspect is said to be 5 feet 7 inches tall, 20 to 30 years of age and weighs about 150 to 160 pounds. This suspect is depicted in the surveillance video standing to the left of the victim.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Central Patrol Investigative First Responder Unit at 713-247-4400 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
