BREAKING: Student defrauded, UHPD reports

News-300x169

A student was defrauded out of $300 Wednesday night, according to an email by the UH Police Department.

A possibly Hispanic male and Hispanic female approached two students in parking lot 12B at approximately 8 p.m. and insisted on repairing the dented vehicle of the complaint for $90.

The student felt threatened and agreed to drive to a nearby ATM at Scott and Elgin to withdraw the money.

It was then that the male suspect “put his arm around” the student and requested $300 instead of the initial $90.

The student withdrew the money, gave it to the suspects and they left walking northbound on Scott from Elgin.

UHPD described the Hispanic male as 5 feet 8 inches tall, 160 pounds with short black hair, blue eyes and a black goatee. He had full sleeve tattoos on both arms and was wearing a black Cadillac baseball cap, light blue stripped shirt covered with “mechanic” style logos, blue jeans, tennis shoes and a rainbow colored backpack.

The female is described as 5 feet 10 inches and heavyset, with a star tattoo on the left side of her neck. She was wearing an orange tank top, blue jeans and tennis shoes.

No weapon was used.

Anyone with additional information or any leads on the unidentified suspects is encouraged to call UHPD at 713-743-3333.
