On Sunday, January 15, shortly after 8pm., Sugar Land Police responded to a robbery at the Walgreens located at 17330 W Grand Parkway along State 99.
According to Sugar Land Police spokesman Doug Adolph, employees told police that a man walked into the store and passed a note demanding prescription medication. That same note also indicated that the man was armed with a gun, according to Adolph. Although no gun was ever seen by employees, the pharmacist complied and the man left the store without further incident.
The suspect was described by witnesses as a white male with light skin. He was between 5’11” – 6’ and between the ages of 20 to 25, weighing between 160-175 pounds. At the time of the robbery the suspect was wearing a white shirt with a hood, gray/white backtrack shorts, white shoes and knee high socks.
Adolph said no injuries were reported and investigators are actively working on the case.
The second robbery that week occurred on the afternoon of January 17 shortly before 5 ip.m. In that incident Sugar Land police responded to a home in the 13400 block of Nantucket Drive after a 911 call. Adolph said the information in that case was that a woman was approached from behind, by a man who choked her and stole her cell phone before running away.
The woman’s aunt witnessed the incident and followed the attacker in her car as he ran. The victim’s aunt followed the man then contacted police to provide information on his location said Adolph.
Olushaji Olademeji Bosun-Ojomo, 17, of Houston, was arrested and charged with robbery.
