Police search for suspects in armed robbery at apartment complex


This just in from Trey Hatt, the city of San Marcos spokesperson:

San Marcos police are searching for two suspects accused of attempted armed robbery last week.

On Wednesday, Nov. 26 at 12:59 a.m., officers made contact at Central Texas Medical Center with a reported gunshot victim. The female victim reported that she was walking with a friend at an apartment complex in the 1100 block of River Ridge Parkway when two males approached them. According to the victim, one of the males demanded money and displayed what she described to be a firearm.

When the male pointed the firearm at the victim’s head, she grabbed it in an effort to move it away from her.

The weapon went off and caused an injury to the female’s hand. The two males then fled on foot toward the rear of the apartment complex. The female was treated and released at CTMC.

The males were described by the victim and witness as:

Suspect No. 1

  • Hispanic male
  • Late teens, early 20’s
  • 5’8”-5’10”, thin build
  • Possibly wearing a black shirt

Suspect No. 2

  • Hispanic male
  • Late teens or early 20’s
  • Also 5’8”-5’10”, thin build

One thought on “Police search for suspects in armed robbery at apartment complex

  1. it seems to me that we need the police to allow citizens to be tested and allowed to use force against these gang members. they are from sa south of us. they hit here and then go home on IH35. obviously, they have no regard for human life. as an ex army sniper i would volunteer for this project.
