HOUSTON, Texas — (Scroll Down For Video) — The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is releasing surveillance video in hopes of identifying two juvenile males chasing a third juvenile and placing him in the trunk of a vehicle.

Deputies were called to the Popeye’s restaurant located at 22534 Tomball Parkway on Monday, January 8, 2018, at around 6:15 p.m.

A customer told an employee that a black Toyota Corolla pulled into the parking lot of the store and a white male juvenile 12 to 16 years of age, 5’4 to 5’6 in height and weighing 120-140 pounds exited the driver-side passenger seat and was running around in the parking lot.

The male was wearing blue shorts, a blue and white shirt with lettering on the front.

A second juvenile male is driving the vehicle and exits to chase the male on foot after opening the trunk of the car. He is described as a Hispanic juvenile 16-20 years of age, 5’7 to 5’9 in height and weighing 250-300 pounds.

He was wearing long black shorts and a dark shirt.

A third Hispanic juvenile male is seen getting out of the front passenger and opening the trunk.

He also begins chasing the male around the parking lot.

There is also a fourth male in the vehicle that never exited it, but did open the trunk again, after the possible victim closed it as he ran past.

The complainant male was eventually caught and placed in the car’s trunk before it drove away.

Anyone who can help identify these three individuals is urged to call the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Homicide unit at 713-274-9100.
