Police Investigate Armed Robberies that Could be Linked

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The Corpus Christi Police Department is investigating two robberies that both happened in broad daylight, and investigators think they could be related.

The latest one happened at a house on the 3600 block of Marion Street, near Carroll.

According to police, at around 3 p.m. Sunday, two men busted into the house, assaulted the people inside and took off with some of their belongings. At least one of the men had a gun, and used it to hit one of the victims.

Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt, but police are still looking for the crooks, who apparently didn't act alone. Witness said there were two females waiting in the getaway car as the duo carried out the robbery.

"The only thing I noticed about the vehicle, it was a brown, older model car; it had on the front driver's side a piece of plastic hanging; there was a Hispanic lady driving, and another lady in the back seat," said a witness, who asked to remain anonymous. "They were waiting for the guys who were in there to come out."

Once the robbers are caught, they will face felony charges.

Police also said that this could be linked to another robbery that happened about three hours earlier.

Police said two women in their 20s or 30s checked out of their room at the La Quinta Inn, near Airline off SPID. The women were in the parking lot when they spotted two men walking toward them, both were wearing masks.

According to investigators, the robbers demanded cash. The women handed it over and they took off.

The robbers were described as average height, dark skinned, driving a reddish-brown, older model, four-door car.

During both of the robberies, the victims noticed an additional two people in the car, who never got out.

If you know anything that might help police track these guys down, call Crimestoppers at 361-888-8477.
