Original Press Release

February 4, 2010, at approximately 10:45 AM a women was robbed in the parking lot of The Woodlands Mall and was shot in the leg.

Deputies responded to 911 calls from the north side of the Woodlands Mall near J. C. Penny’s at approximated 10:45 AM this morning involving a young woman who was shot in the leg by a suspect who tried to steal her car.

Deputy Dax Bayer arrived about one minute after the dispatcher broadcast the incident and was able to gather good accurate information from witnesses about the suspect’s description and the direction in which he fled. Sergeant Brady Fitzgerald found the suspect hiding in tall grass near the overpass at Lake Woodlands and IH 45. The suspect was arrested and was positively identified as the suspect by several witnesses.

While the investigation is still on-going and witnesses still being interviewed early facts obtained by deputies are that a young woman (age 23) arrived at the mall and as she was exiting her Toyota the suspect approached her wanting to take her car. A struggle ensued between the two and the woman was shot one time in the upper leg. She was taken to a near-by hospital where she was treated and is in good condition.

At this time the suspect has not cooperated with deputies and has not provided his name and has not been positively identified, but he is believed to be from the Houston area. The suspect African male, believed to be in his early 20’s, was arrested and taken to the Montgomery Jail. The instigation is on-going and as updates are available those will be released.

    He was an African male? Not American? Also, it is “woman” (singular), not “women” (plural).

    its about time the cops did there job they never catch anyone anymore all they do is sit at bars at night and watch everyone and hang all over the woman

    According to the census for the Woodlands:
    African Americans make up only 1.75% (975) of the population . I agree the census is old but lets just say for statistics the numbers are correct. Why is it that with only 975 Blacks and 49,000 whites and other races that a very large majority of the crimes in the woodlands are committed by Blacks? I encourage everyone to call the police when they see a black person in The Woodlands and report it as Suspicious Activity as you might be the next one shot. Did you know that more Black men are in jail then in college? Just stating the facts

    The “horseback security” force mentioned during the interview, is perhaps a warm and fuzzy photo op with your kid but totally useless otherwise. On a couple of occassions I have even reported problems to on-duty equine patrolers with no response forthcoming. Better off having a bunch of “Paul Blart Mall Cops” riding around the parking areas.
