Police Release Surveillance Video of Craigslist Robber

Surveillance video posted at http://www.sugarlandtx.gov/robbery164001

Sugar Land, TX - Sugar Land police are looking for a man who answered a Craigslist ad, attacked the seller and stole his merchandise.

The victim told police he posted an advertisement on Craigslist for three pairs of Air Jordan sneakers valued at more than $585.

He was contacted by a potential buyer on Aug. 11, and the two agreed to meet at First Colony Mall, 16535 Southwest Freeway, at 8 p.m. the same day.

The two met inside the mall but agreed to conduct the transaction in the parking lot because the buyer said his baby was in his vehicle with a friend.

As they walked toward a grey Nissan passenger vehicle occupied by a black man, the seller was unable to see a baby inside the vehicle. The seller became uneasy and went back inside the mall. The suspect followed him into a restroom, sprayed the victim with pepper spray, hit him twice and took the shoes.

The suspect was last seen casually walking away and leaving in the Nissan. He was a black man with braided hair; about 6 feet 2 inches tall; and was wearing a black bandana on his head, a Charlotte Hornets shirt, black sweat pants and a pair of black and white shoes that the victim believed to be Air Jordan’s.

A review of surveillance video showed the suspect in the mall with the stolen merchandise.

Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at (281) 275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477).
