Police: Driver followed, robbed at Pasadena intersection

PASADENA, TX (KTRK) -- Pasadena police are searching for two suspects who robbed a woman driving home from work early Monday morning.

According to the Pasadena Police Department, a woman in her mid-20s was driving home from a gentleman's club around 3am Monday when she noticed a car following her. As the woman stopped at the intersection of Red Bluff and Kirby, the other vehicle pulled up beside her and two men inside opened fire, shooting out one of the woman's tires.

The suspects then pulled the victim out of her car.

"They guy had a gun to my head and said pop your trunk so I popped my trunk, and he pulled me by my right arm and pulled me to the ground," the victim told Eyewitness News.

She remembers feeling the gun to the back of her head while they cleaned out her car.

"I know you're not going to rob somebody nicely, 'Hey please give me your money,' but very vulgar, intimidating," she said.

The suspects stole her phone and wallet and got away.

The victim ran about a half-mile to the nearest residential area and knocked on several doors until someone answered and called police. She was not injured in the robbery.

"I just remember saying they shot, they shot, I was hysterical," she said. "The lady kept her arms around me and said I was ok and God was watching me."

Pasadena police are not sure yet where the men started following her. Spokesperson for the City Vance Mitchell says police "are trying to retrieve any video available, they are looking for fingerprints. We have the car, it's here, we're looking for DNA."

The suspects were described only as two black males in bandannas and caps.

So far, they haven't found any records of a similar crime recently within the city limits.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
