Houston police have released the name of a man suspected of being 'the Choker,' a robber who choked his victims to unconsciousness before stealing their money. Police released a sketch of the 'Choker' back in September. The suspect, 35-year-old Pius Kissinger Knott, is so far only charged with one count of aggravated assault. Authorities are not releasing his picture until they're finished using him in lineups.

Investigators believe the 'Choker is responsible for at least 17 robberies since January.
