Home invasion investigated by Parker County Sheriff's Department

February 3, 2010 by Lori Cope

Parker County Sheriff’s investigators are seeking the public’s help with identifying and locating two suspects believed to have robbed and pistol-whipped a disabled man late Monday evening, Feb. 1, in his northeastern Parker County home.

The victim was in bed at his home on West 40 Estates in Azle around 10:30 p.m. when two men entered the home with weapons, beat him with a pistol and demanding cash.

When the victim’s assistance dog “Major” attacked one of the suspects, the 12-year-old German shepherd was fatally shot twice – once with a .380 handgun and again with a .410 shotgun.

A family member heard the shots and ran to help. She saw the men fleeing, with an undisclosed amount of cash, and pursued the men in her vehicle.

Parker County Sheriff’s Lt. Mark Arnett said the woman lost sight of them near Silver Creek Elementary School on FM 730 after they fired several shots at her vehicle, striking it on the driver’s side. The woman was not injured.

The suspects are described as last seen wearing coveralls and pull-over masks. The first suspect is described as 6’2” or 6’3” tall. The second suspect is described as approximately 5’9” tall – both with medium builds. The vehicle the men fled in is described as a blue, early 2000 model, Chevrolet pickup truck with what appeared to be white magnetic signs.

The victim was not hospitalized but received seven wound-closing staples from injuries he sustained during the crime.

The suspects are wanted by sheriffs’ investigators for committing a first-degree felony of aggravated robbery. Anyone with information about the crime should call the sheriff’s office immediately at 817-594- 8845.
