A bizarre video caught on a central Houston-area home’s surveillance camera shows an unknown suspect randomly throwing a brick through an unsuspecting homeowner’s window July 27.
Recorded near the cross streets of Robertson Street and Weiss Street, the video shows an unidentified man calmly walking down Robertson street holding a brick. The man pauses in front of the home before throwing the brick, shattering the front window. He then walks off just as quietly and calmly as when he approached the home.
A spokesperson for the Houston Police Department said the homeowners, a couple both in their thirties, were home at the time of the incident. The couple immediately called police to file a report and an investigation has launched to find the suspect.
The reason for the incident is unknown – the homeowners have never seen the man before, according to a spokesperson with Ring, the private video doorbell company that recorded the video.
The HPD spokesperson said if the suspect is found he could face charges of criminal mischief of habitation, which is typically classified as a Class B misdemeanor.
Police believe the suspect is in his teens or twenties; he was wearing a black shirt and shorts at the time of the incident. Police are asking anyone with information on the suspect to contact HPD’s burglary and theft division at 713-308-0900
