Men accused of robbing man who was mowing


At about 10am on Thursday, March 1, investigators say a man was mowing grass at the Bay Ridge Christian College when two Hispanic males drove up in a gold-colored older model passenger car. The two males asked for directions to Sealy, then assaulted the man and stole his wallet, which contained his credit cards, authorities say.

Fort Bend County Sheriff's deputies were called to the scene. Shortly after the incident, investigators say the victim's credit cards were used at truck stops in Beasley and Hungerford.

Surveillance video from the truck stop showed the license plate number of the vehicle.

Officials say one suspect was identified as Randy Arreguin, 21, who was arrested on March 21.

Photos were shown to residents in Kendleton, and soon, the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office detectives learned the identity of the second suspect, Hector Delgado, 23. Delgado was arrested Thursday. Both arrests were made without incident.

Officials say Arreguin faces two charges, including credit card abuse - elderly, which carries a $25,000 bond, and aggravated robbery, which has a bond of $80,000.

Delgado has an $80,000 bond for aggravated robbery, and he also has a charge from Wharton County of unlawful use of a criminal instrument, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office.

Both men are in the Fort Bend County Jail.
