San Marcos police investigators are asking for help identifying people who stabbed a man near Sewell Park early April 20 and then ran over him with a car while he lay bleeding on the sidewalk.
police news
Between 3:45 and 4:30 a.m. Saturday, April 20, a man got into an argument with a Latino male, described as six-feet tall and a muscular 210 pounds, near the intersection of Sessom Drive and Aquarena Springs Drive on the Texas State University campus. The suspect stabbed the victim and left. Shortly thereafter, a 1960s or 1970s model beige muscle car ran over the victim, jumping the curb and driving onto the sidewalk to do so.

The victim was seriously injured, said Hays County Sheriff’s deputy Sam Montemayor, Hays County Crime Stoppers’ law enforcement coordinator. Other details about the victim’s condition and about the crime itself were not immediately available.

Hays County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that helps San Marcos police find the felony suspects. Tips can be phoned in at 1-800-324-TIPS or submitted on the organization’s website here.

Informants can offer their tips, and claim their reward, without being identified and without being forced to testify in court, Montemayor said.

  1. I read all of the newspapers available and try to stay informed. How come this is just now becoming news? It doesn’t sound like the police have arrested anyone and it seems that the citizens should be aware of such a serious crime in a park and on-campus.

  2. Mary, I just didn’t know about it. I agree it’s kind of jarring to read.

    Anyone who witnesses major crime or structure fires or other spot news while out and about is encouraged to call or text me any time of the day or night. My cell number is 512-757-7968.

  3. Normally the campus police issue e-mails about crimes on or near campus when they’re seeking a suspect and want information, even if the San Marcos PD were the ones responding. They didn’t for this, and that is very disturbing. Thank you, Mr. Rollins, for letting us know.
