The cases are under investigation. Based on witness statements, there are similarities in some of the robberies, however it is unclear at this time, how many are related. In each robbery, the actors are described as 2-3 black males in their teens to early twenties, armed with black handguns, demanding money and property (cell phones, wallets etc.) from the victims.

BPD would like to remind our citizens to stay vigilant and always be aware of your surroundings. If you are approached by someone who is armed and demanding your property, comply. No property is worth risking your life. Try to remain calm and get as much descriptive information about the suspects (race, gender, clothing description, physical description, tattoos, description of weapon, vehicle description, license plate, direction of travel) and call 911 immediately. If you see something, say something.

If you have any information about these crimes, call Southeast Texas Crime Stoppers at (409) 833-TIPS(8477).
