A middle school preteen was accosted and threatened on her way home from school in the Ashford Lakes subdivision.
On March 1, at 8:15 p.m., Sugar Land police were called to a home in the 11000 block of Ashford Haven Drive in Sugar Land to investigate an aggravated robbery.
According to Sugar Land police spokesman Doug Adolph, a 12-year-old girl was walking home at 4:30 p.m. that afternoon and police responded as soon as they were notified.
Reportedly, as the child was walking home from her bus stop, a small red passenger car stopped at her driveway. Adolph said a man got out of the car, walked over to her, grabbed her by the neck and demanded money. The girl screamed, causing the man to run back to his vehicle and flee, said Adolph. The man was described as a black male, about 6’ 2”, wearing a baseball cap, a red oversized shirt and baggy pants.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Sugar Land police department at 281-275-2500.
Further, residents are warned to be alert and vigilant in that area, contacting police if they notice anything unusual.
