Police: Carjacking suspect in Sugar Land couldn't drive stick shift


It happened on May 26 in the 14200 block of the Southwest Freeway near Sugar Creek Center. The victim said he was fishing at around 11:15am when he was approached by a man with a revolver.

The suspect reportedly demanded the victim's keys but couldn't drive a vehicle with manual transmission. So the suspect ordered the victim to drive him to Stafford, where the suspect got out of the car near Wright Road and Kirkwood Drive.

Police say the victim then drove to a nearby gas station and flagged down a Stafford officer.

The suspect was described as an African-American male, 16 to 17 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a thin build and short hair. He was wearing black pants, a red hoodie and blue latex gloves.

Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at (281) 275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477).
