Would you believe that a senior couple in Texas were robbed, tasered, and the man was beaten?
The victim was first attacked after being approached by the two men while he was inside of his garage. He suffered a broken nose and multiple lacerations to his face. The suspects then dragged him back into his home, where he and his wife were held at gunpoint and robbed.
A total of $56,000 worth of cash, valuables and guns were taken from the residence.
The two suspects left the home and a citizen witnessed the two suspects throwing latex gloves out of the car window while leaving a parking lot near the victim’s home. The citizen took a photo of the license plate, which lead police to one of the suspect’s girlfriend who provided information about the suspect.
The ironic part of this case is while investigating the suspect, police found photos on the suspects Facebook page of stolen cash and other valuables belonging to the victims.
One of the suspects, a 21-year-old man, has already been sentenced to 35 years in prison. The second suspect is awaiting trial.
Social media to the rescue…glad it helped this senior couple!
