Homeowner Speaks Out About Portland Chase Suspect

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Just last week, 30-year old Brian Robles, the suspect who was shot by police after Monday's high-speed chase, had been taken in by a local family who thought he was just down on his luck.

Instead, the family said he turned on them.

"He needed a place to stay, so we let him stay at our home," said the homeowner, who wished to remain anonymous. "He only had the clothes on his back, and I felt so sorry for him, so I went and bought him clothes, gave him money, even fed him."

The homeowner said Robles had been a customer of hers for years, and that he has eight children and was just recently divorced. He was in Corpus Christi working in construction, building homes.

However, last Friday when she and her husband returned home, Robles was gone and had allegedly taken several items, including her husband's rifle and the silver pistol that she believes was used to shoot at police on Monday. She said he even took an old cell phone.

"It had a lot of pictures of my granddaughter, grandkids," the homeowner said. "He took that. I'm not going to get that, Katia. That is all gone. It hurts so much."

The woman filed a police report and hopes to recover whatever she can.
