Man Dragged, Run Over During Robbery

Posted: Updated:
FROM THE CORPUS CHRISTI POLICE DEPARTMENT -

Occurred on 10/3/12, 02:52 am  Aggravated Robbery   5200 Williams

Officers contacted the victim's sister who reported her brother had been run over by a car during a robbery.  The victim told Officers he was trying to sell his Play Station 3 to someone he met on Facebook.  They negotiated a price for the PS3 and agreed to meet at 5222 Williams.

Once there the "buyer" pulled out a knife and attempted to rob the victim.  A scuffle ensued during which the suspect was unable to open the knife.  As the struggle continued on, the victim fell inside the vehicle, dropping the PS3 on floorboard.  The victim was dragged before having his leg run over as the suspect drove off.  He sustained a large abrasion to his leg, but refused to be taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

Officers checked the area for the suspect, but were unable to find the suspect.  The suspect provided the victim with his identity and the robbery investigation will be turned over to the Police Department's Homicide/Robbery Bureau.

Anyone with any additional information on this crime is encouraged to call the Criminal Investigation Division at 361-886-2841 or remain anonymous and call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS.  You can also submit a tip online at www.888TIPS.com.  Tipsters can earn a cash reward if the suspect is arrested.

If selling items on eBay, Craig's List, or Facebook, the Police Department recommends that you meet in a public, well lit place and avoid pick-ups from home at all costs.  When selling, do not publish your address or invite strangers into your home.  Tell a friend or family member where you're going.  Above all, trust your instincts.
