Houston crime: A 94-year-old man believes he was targeted because of his age

HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — A man who was robbed days before his 94th birthday believes he was the target of a gang gang in north Houston because of his age.

Now Houston police are scrambling to find the suspects who stole his money after a trip to the bank.

On September 10, Lino Izaguirre drove himself to Chase Bank, where he withdrew $700 for bills, gas, and groceries. But his drive home became dangerous when he says he was being followed 14 blocks from the bank.

A neighbor’s security camera caught the suspect’s car driving past his home and then turning around.

As Izaguirre got out of his car in the 800 block driveway of East 39th Street, two men jumped out of the vehicle and pinned him against his car. A suspect then reached into Izaguirre’s pocket and pulled out the envelope containing money.

“Behind the first man was another person with a hammer in his left hand… and he didn’t say anything, either,” Izaguirre recalled.

Since the incident, Izaguirre said the only mistake he made that day was publicly counting his money.

“I sat down in front of him to count the money I had withdrawn. I saw it was right. I put it in my bag and left,” he said.

Both suspects were described as Hispanic males. A man was about 30 years old and weighed 180 pounds. The second suspect was between 35 and 40 years old.

The suspect’s vehicle was described as a dark-colored Lincoln SUV with no license plates.

Anyone with information is urged to call Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
