Updated September 14, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.:

Home invasion style robberies have occurred at the following locations on the South Central Division over the past week:

September 11th:

  • 2900 block of Britton Avenue

  • 1500 block of Maywood Avenue

 September 12th

  • 9300 block of Sedgemoor Ave

At this time, we have no evidence that leads us to believe that the Capital Murder on Sedgemoor is related to the other four offenses.

However, the other four offenses do bear some similarities.  We are seeking the public’s assistance in gathering any information about these offenses. 

Since these offenses began to occur on Monday, the police department has been actively investigating them to discover the identity of the suspects, while also developing strategies to increase preventative efforts in the community. 

The South Central Patrol division has deployed significant resources to the area.  These include preventative patrol and NPO officers who are walking the neighborhoods, passing out flyers and attempting to establish crime watch groups. 

We advise all citizens to be aware of their surroundings and report suspicious vehicles or persons by calling 9-1-1. 

In an unrelated home invasion capital murder on Paldao Drive, we have recovered the vehicle taken from Norma Kakacek and have two persons of interest that we are speaking with at this time. 

Anyone with information about any of these home invasion robberies are asked to call detectives at (214) 671-3679 or Crime Stoppers at (214) 373-TIPS.
