Pharr police seek help from public in home invasion case

PHARR — Police here need help identifying suspects in a home invasion which took place last week.

Pharr police said a woman was assaulted at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8, at her residence in the 2700 block of Ashley Court in Pharr during a home invasion.

The woman, who was not identified, told authorities three men who appeared to be armed with firearms forced their way into her residence and demanded drugs from her on the aforementioned date, according to a news release.

“As Officers arrived, they learned from the female victim that three subjects forced their way into her residence,” the release states.

The woman told police that as the three men made their escape, they stole some valuables from the residence.

“Upon further investigation, persons of interest were observed near the area of the home invasion,” the release states.

Surveillance footage of the alleged home invasion shows four men arrive in a blue or dark in color Audi four-door sedan.

The men immediately head toward the woman’s residence, leaving the driver’s side door open.

About a minute later, the four men, each carrying items in their hands, come running back to the vehicle, and depart the location.

Police said the woman only described three men, stating the fourth man was likely outside as a lookout.

They describe the first suspect as a Hispanic male, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, about 20 to 30 years old, wearing a black hat, a camouflage mask (green and brown color), a brown long sleeve shirt, blue pants and black gloves.

The second suspect, also a Hispanic male, thin build, between 20 and 30 years old, was wearing a black hat, black mask with a dark colored long sleeve shirt and dark colored pants.

The third suspect, a Hispanic male, about 5 feet, 11 inches tall, thin build, black and greyish hair, between 30 and 40 years old, was wearing a black hat, a multi-colored mask, sunglasses, a gray shirt and dark colored pants.
