HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – A man has been apprehended by Harris County sheriff’s deputies in connection with the attack on an 83-year-old great-grandmother during an alleged carjacking in the Aldine area. The suspect was taken into custody just days after the violent incident occurred outside of a local grocery store last Thursday.

According to reports, the victim, Lydia Sanchez, was leaving La Michoacana on Aldine Mail Route when she was forcibly removed from her vehicle, assaulted, and injured. The suspect then fled the scene in her car, which still contained her purse with a substantial amount of cash.

Authorities were able to track down the suspect to a hotel room at the Americas Best Value Inn off FM-1960 Road West, where he was surrounded and eventually surrendered without resistance. The suspect is now facing charges related to the carjacking, as well as aggravated robbery, felony burglary, and family assault.

The sheriff’s office did not immediately disclose the suspect’s identity or provide a mugshot. However, Lt. Robert Schields commended the apprehension team for their efforts in locating and apprehending the suspect swiftly to prevent further victimization in Harris County.
