Fort Bend County sheriff’s deputies are searching for an armed robber who knocked down an elderly woman at her Pecan Grove residence on Monday and stole her purse.
Investigators said the robbery occurred around 3 p.m. in the 2000 block of Wren Meadow Drive in Richmond’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.
The victim told deputies she arrived home from the Chase Bank in Richmond when she was confronted by a man with a handgun. She said he pushed her down and stole her purse.
The man got out of a white SUV which appears to be a newer model white, Dodge Journey, with tinted windows, black luggage rack, solid black wheels, and paper tags, investigators said.
Detectives have learned that this vehicle of interest was used minutes earlier by two men who broke into a vehicle at Brazos Town Center.
At 2:46 p.m. deputies were dispatched to a vehicle burglary at the HEB off FM 762 on Circle Oak Parkway in the Richmond area.
The victim had left the Wells Fargo in Rosenberg Town Center and drove straight to the HEB, investigators said.
The victim was inside the store and there were no witnesses to the burglary, but it was caught on video.
However, security video shows a white Dodge Journey with paper tags pull up to the victim’s vehicle, and a man break the window, and steal the victim’s purse.
“This is an ongoing investigation,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls. “Help us catch those responsible and earn some money for yourself the right way.”
