Violent Carjacking Leads Police To Arrest Two Brothers
Houston Police have arrested two men in connection to a carjacking which left one woman injured in Southeast Houston last week.
Click2Houston reports the incident involving two brothers happened on April 28th. Both brothers were friends of the woman. One of the brothers went to her home to ask to borrow her truck, he drove the truck while she rode in the passenger seat. They went to his home where his brother came out with an assault rifle and attempted to steal her purse.
Police reports indicate that when she refused to give it to him, struck her in the face with the gun, knocking out her teeth and leaving her with a possible broken jaw. The two brothers took her vehicle and drove off.
The 29-year-old woman was taken to an area hospital for treatment and is expected to recover. Her identity was not released by authorities.
Police detectives arrived at the home of the brothers located on Axilda Street and found four females inside, including one 15-year-old minor that had been reported as a runaway. Police detained three of the women for questioning but later released them.
Police obtained a warrant to search the home, but before doing so, a woman came to pick up her children who were in the care of one of the women reportedly married to one of the brothers.
Police later found the two men with the pickup truck and placed them under arrest. Their identities have not been released.
Records indicate that police were called to an earlier incident at the same resident on April 23rd in which a 1-year old infant was shot in the leg during a drive-by shooting. The child was taken to the hospital and is expected to be ok.
