Police investigate multiple aggravated assaults

Beaumont police officers are investigating multiple aggravated assaults that sent three people to the hospital on Aug. 29, reports Officer Haley Morrow. 

According to Morrow, an officer patrolling near Avenue F and Roberts at 7:23 p.m. that evening located a victim of a stabbing. Preliminary investigation into the incident reportedly revealed that the victim had an altercation with someone in the 1900 block of Roberts, which escalated into a aggravated assault. The victim was transported to a local hospital by Beaumont EMS with injuries that did not appear life-threatening. The investigation is ongoing; however, police say the victim has been uncooperative.

At about 8 p.m. the same night,  Beaumont Police responded to San Jacinto and Cartwright Avenue in reference to a victim of a shooting. The victim was transported to a local hospital by Beaumont EMS with non life-threatening injuries. Detectives arrived on-scene to investigate, but say both the victim and witness were uncooperative with the investigation.

A few hours later, at  11:01 p.m., officers responded to a call of "shots fired" at 3710 E. Lucas. While en route, several callers reported that someone had been shot. When officers arrived at the scene, they found the victim in the 3600 block of E. Lucas. He was suffering from a gunshot wound. Preliminary investigation revealed that the victim and the suspects were involved in an altercation at 3710 E. Lucas, which escalated into an aggravated assault. The suspects fled the scene prior to officers' arrival. The victim was transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Police are working to find out what happened but, reports Morrow, the victim of this incident is not cooperating either, just like in the other aggravated assaults from the same evening. 

Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to call Beaumont Police at (409) 832-1234 or Southeast Texas Crime Stoppers at (409) 833-TIPS (8477).
