SMPD Searching for Armed Offenders in Second Grove Incident

San Marcos Police Department update on The Grove Incident

San Marcos Police are searching for two armed offenders who are believed to be responsible for a second incident at The Grove at San Marcos, 1150 E. River Ridge Parkway, and continue to ask the public for their assistance in solving this crime.  

On Friday, Nov. 20, officers responded to a second incident related to the home invasion that occurred on Tuesday, Nov. 17 at The Grove at San Marcos.  On Friday afternoon, at approximately 3:41 p.m., two unidentified offenders assaulted and robbed a resident at the apartment complex as the resident was entering his vehicle in the parking lot.   

2007 Blue Chevy TahoeAfter forcing the male victim into their vehicle, the offenders pointed a gun at him and demanded he provide them with his apartment number.  One of the offenders stole the victim’s keys and made entry into his apartment.  After stealing items from the victim’s apartment, the offenders ordered the victim out of their vehicle and then stole the victim’s vehicle.  

The victim described the offenders as two black males.  One of the offenders departed the apartment complex in a 2006 to 2013 white Chevrolet Impala with dark tinted windows, identical to the one used in the home invasion incident on November 17.  The Impala has an obvious dent on the hood just above the front grill on the vehicle.  

The other offender fled the apartment complex in the victim’s 2007 blue Chevrolet Tahoe with custom black wheels.  Both vehicles fled southbound on IH35 in the direction of San Antonio.  At this point, detectives strongly believe both vehicles are in the San Antonio area.

The armed offenders were not located and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the incident or the vehicles should contact Detective Aubry at 512.753.2306 or paubry@sanmarcostx.gov.  

Detectives are not available for interview; other inquires may be sent to communicationsinfo@sanmarcostx.gov.
