Authorities seek man wanted for aggravated robbery

HOUSTON Police say on March 26, five males dressed in black appeared at an elderly woman's house on Battan Road and identified themselves as police officers. When the victim cracked open the door, the men pushed their way inside. The victim tried to get to her telephone, but one of the suspects, Eric Dewayne Brown, 24, hit her in the back of her head with his gun. The woman fell to the floor and was left lying in a pool of her own blood.

The five suspects then proceeded to ransack her house and steal jewelry from her son's bedroom. As they were leaving, the suspects commented on how much the victim was bleeding and Brown told her he was going to call 911 for her, but he never did. The victim was able to crawl to her phone and call her daughter who called 911. The victim was transported to a local hospital and it took 17 staples to close the gash on her head.

After an investigation, Brown was charged with aggravated robbery and a warrant for his arrest. Brown already has three other warrants for his arrest, one for aggravated assault and two for burglary.

Brown is a black male with short black hair and brown eyes. He is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds.
