In a breaking news story last week, detectives were seeking the public’s assistance in their efforts to find the man who shot a Foster Creek woman in her home. Little to no details were available at press time.
However, since last week, the victim and her assailant have been identified as well as the announcement of his arrest.
Sheriff’s detectives arrested Michael Warren, 58, last Thursday afternoon at a Rosenberg motel for the aggravated assault of his former girlfriend Sylvia Casares. According to Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel detectives located Warren at the Palace Inn in Rosenberg through an anonymous tip. According to reports, after the shooting, Warren had traveled from the Houston area to Louisiana and then was returned to Fort Bend County by a relative.
The aggravated assault charges against Warren stem from a domestic dispute that erupted at the victim’s home in the posh country community of Foster Lake Estates, in Fort Bend County between Richmond and Fulshear. According to authorities Warren and Casares had an argument and Warren shot her. Casares was flown to Houston via air ambulance and treated for her gunshot injuries. She is expected to make a full recovery.
Sylvia Casares is familiar to many in Houston as well as those in the Richmond/Rosenberg communities as she has owned and operated several successful Mexican food restaurants in both areas. For the last 15 years she has been extremely successful in Houston with her Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchens; one on Woodway near Voss and the other on Westheimer near Dairy Ashford. She has recently added a No Borders food truck serving her fare across the community. The continued operations of the Enchilada Kitchens are being run by family and staff as Casares convalesces.
Although arrested on Thursday, with a bond of $100,000, Warren made bail and was out of the Fort Bend County jail the following day.
