- Written by B.R. Kimbro
The Houston Police Department released composite sketches yesterday of three out of five suspects accused of invading a Kingwood home, holding the family hostage and staging an aggravated armed robbery with deadly weapons late last month. One female suspect, Siniad Vanessa Gonzalez, was arrested a short time after the robbery. According to HPD, four unknown men approached the victim at his front door Feb. 26 in the 1700 block of Sandy Trail Court around 1 a.m and forced him inside his home. The suspects then assaulted the resident with guns and bound his wife and two grandchildren. The victim said the suspects demanded money from a safe that he did not have, police reported. The whole ordeal lasted about two hours while the suspects ransacked the home, stealing numerous items including an iPad, iPhone and a gun before fleeing the scene in a BMW and Chevy Equinox. The three suspects that were drawn in composite sketches are described only as Hispanic males in their late 20s to early 30s, who spoke Spanish with a possible Colombian accent, police said. One suspect was about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a thick build, the second was about 5 feet 6 inches tall with a skinny build and the third suspect was about 5 feet 3 inches tall with a medium build. A fourth male suspect was involved but no description was available. Gonzalez, a 21-year-old Alief-area resident, was spotted driving south on the highway at about 5:40 a.m. driving in a black BMW. Items stolen from the house were inside the trunk. Gonzalez is no facing felony charges of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon in the 182nd State District Court. Anyone with information on the identities of the suspects is urged to contact the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
