Sheriff’s office seeks ‘extremely dangerous’ suspect

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a person investigators call a “very dangerous fugitive,” 33-year-old Brock Jimone McNeil. The suspect is wanted in connection to an aggravated robbery that occurred Dec. 30, 2009, in the 4400 block of Irene Street in Beaumont.

According to the sheriff’s office, McNeil committed the 2009 home invasion robbery along with another actor. The two suspects gained entry into the home by forcing their way in with pistols after the husband attempted to leave the residence to go to the store and was ambushed by the waiting assailants. The victim was confronted at the front door of his home and pushed back into the residence that was also occupied by his wife and two young children.

Once inside, the suspects bound the family with duct tape and proceeded to torture the husband while demanding that the adults give up the location of a stash of money ($30,000). McNeil, investigators allege, acquired a knife from the kitchen and began stabbing the husband repeatedly in the upper leg. At this time, the wife offered to show the assailants the location of the money.

After obtaining the cash, the suspects made a comment that they would kill the family, according to investigator notes. The wife, at this time, ran for the rear door in an attempt to rescue her family. McNeil shot her in the back causing her to be permanently paralyzed.

McNeil’s last known address was 3520 Sealy in Galveston but investigators believe the armed and dangerous man to still be in the Southeast Texas area. Anyone with information of his location is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at (409) 833-TIPS (8477). A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
