Suspect in robbery case flees in stolen vehicle

New details have emerged in a robbery that occurred Thursday afternoon in front of Bayou Oaks.

While taking shelter from the rain under the shuttle stop in front of the apartments, a UH student was approached from behind by an unknown individual who attempted to take her cellphone from her back pocket.

The suspect retreated to their car parked in the circle drive in front of Bayou Oaks. An altercation occurred at the car between the student and suspect, who then fled north on Calhoun Road.

After reviewing security footage from the area, UHPD investigators identified the vehicle’s license plate and found that it had been reported as stolen to the Houston Police Department.

UHPD said that if students spot the vehicle, a silver 2002 Nissan Altima with the license plate CHN8878, they should report it to UHPD immediately.

HPD has not yet responded to a request for comment.
