Keeping Dallas Safe: Aggravated Robbery Suspects Arrested

On June 15, 2018, at 3:15 a.m., patrol officers responded to a Disturbance Active Shooter call in the 10700 block of Coogan Drive.  Upon arrival, officers spoke to the victim who stated he heard someone breaking into his vehicle and went outside to confront the individual.  The victim approached two Latin males, Jonathan Briseno 18-years-old and Jose Sanchez 18-years-old one of whom pointed a gun at him. The victim ran back towards his house as the suspects fled in a vehicle. The suspects then drove back by the victim’s house while he was in the front yard and fired multiple rounds at him.  The victim was not injured, but the bullets struck two vehicles on the street.  After shooting at the victim, the suspects attempted to flee, but struck another parked vehicle, disabling their vehicle. The two suspects then fled on foot just before officers arrived.

A short time after the suspects fled, Deployment officers and the Northeast Crime Response Team (CRT) officers were in the area searching for the suspects. Deployment Officer Barrett #8593 observed a black Dodge Charger circling the area. The driver appeared to be looking for someone. Deployment and CRT continued to conduct moving surveillance on the driver for approximately 45 minutes until Deployment observed one of the suspects from the aggravated robbery run from the creek at 10500 Allegheny Court and get into the back seat of the car. The driver then began to quickly leave the area.

CRT conducted a felony traffic stop at Shady Trail and Walnut Hill Lane. The Aggravated Robbery suspect and the driver of the vehicle were taken into custody and transported to Dallas Police Headquarters. The accomplice’s six year old daughter was in the vehicle and she was released to family members. A stolen gun that appeared to have been used in the Aggravated Robbery offense was found in the black Dodge Charger.

Both suspects were arrested for Aggravated Robbery and taken to Lew Sterrett. This offense has been documented on case number 128969-2018.  Job well done, Deployment and CRT!
