MEDIA ADVISORY/NEWS RELEASE

On Tuesday, July 7, 2020 and Wednesday, July 8, 2020, Haltom City had two robberies occur that we believe involved the same suspects:

On Tuesday, July 7, 2020, at approximately 5:20 p.m. Haltom City officers responded to the 3100 block of Glenda Ave in reference to a robbery. The victim was an electrician working at a residence on the street and was in his car waiting for the other workers to arrive. Two males approached his vehicle on foot and ordered him out of the vehicle at gunpoint. The two suspects got into the car and fled the area. The victim said the suspect with the gun was wearing a mask and black jacket with a hood. The victim did not have a good description of the second suspect. Surveillance footage from the residence shows the suspects were dropped by a dark colored Chrysler 300 sedan with large, star shaped rims. The suspects appear to both be Hispanic males. The victim’s vehicle is a dark silver 2012 Toyota Camry (Texas license plate BGB8647) with a shattered rear window.

On Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at approximately 11:30 a.m., we received report of a robbery at 1718 Haltom Rd., Doc’s Food Store #7. Witnesses described two Hispanic males enter the store, one armed with handgun and demanding money. They fled the store and were observed getting into a silver Toyota Camry with Texas license plate BGB8647, the vehicle stolen from the previous robbery, and being followed by a dark colored Chrysler 300 with large, star shaped rims. They were last seen getting on northbound Highway 121.

The suspects and vehicles used in these robberies appear to be involved in similar incidents in Fort Worth and Hurst. Our detectives are working closely with neighboring agencies to attempt to identify and locate these suspects. If anyone has information on these suspects, please contact the Haltom City Police Department at 817-222-7000.

Images of the suspects & vehicles involved can be seen in the attached PDF file linked above.

Shooting – 4100 Northern Cross Blvd.

On Monday, June 1, 2020, at approximately 2:45 p.m. Haltom City officers responded to The Grand on Beach apartment complex, located at 4100 Northern Cross Blvd, in reference to a shooting. Upon arrival, officers located a male in his early thirties with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. First aid was rendered and the male was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital for treatment. After an investigation, it was determined that the male was shot while attempting to force entry into an apartment. Due to his injuries and need for medical treatment, the suspect was released at the hospital with charges pending.

After interviewing several witnesses and the victim, it is believed the suspect and several other males and females attempted to force their way into the victim’s apartment. The victim, believing his life was in danger, fired a single round from a handgun towards the suspect. This appears to stem from a personal feud between residents of the victim’s apartment and the suspect. The victim, a 19 year old male, was released at the scene and charges are not anticipated. No arrests were made at this time.

This is still an on-going investigation and additional arrests and/or charges may be forthcoming. Information will be released as it becomes available.
