According to police, the male victim, 46, was picked up by the suspect and a driver (second suspect) and taken to an ATM at the Wells Fargo Bank at 2714 Smith Street about 6:30am on October 10. Houston police say the suspect threatened the victim with a knife and forced him to withdraw funds from the ATM.
When the victim did not withdraw funds, police say the suspect attempted to take the victim's wallet, at which point a struggle ensued and the suspect stabbed the victim multiple times. Witnesses overheard the suspect yelling that he was going to kill the victim. After stabbing the victim, the suspect fled in the waiting Marquis and fled in an unknown direction.
The victim was left in the bank's drive-through lanes. He was transported by paramedics to Memorial Hermann Hospital and treated for his severe wounds.
The suspects are described only as two black males. One is described as approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall, 20 to 30 years of age and weighing about 150 to 160 pounds. This suspect is depicted in the surveillance video to the left of the victim. The suspect were seen driving in a four-door, 90s model, possibly gold Mercury Grand Marquis.
