4 men sought in attempted robbery in Angelina Co.

Posted: Updated:

ANGELINA COUNTY (KYTX) - Angelina County Sheriff's Department is investigating an attempted robbery of an elderly man in the Central community of Angelina County Tuesday morning.

Angelina County Sheriff Greg Sanches tells KYTX CBS 19 that four black males in two white cars pulled up to the man's house on Farm Road 2021 around 11 a.m. and pulled a gun on him demanding money and for him to get down on the ground. After the men realized the elderly man didn't have any money they then demanded him to give them the keys to his house. One of the men, for an unknown reason, fired a round through the victim's front door striking an object inside of the home. The four men then left the scene in what Sheriff Sanches describes as a white 4-door Lincoln and a white mid sized car.

The victim was unharmed during the incident.

Deputies later pulled over 4 men in a car on McCarty Road fitting the description of one of the cars that was at the scene of the attempted robbery. Sheriff Sanches says the men were interviewed and are possible suspects. Sheriff Sanches also said they are looking into a possible of two more men in connection with the incident.

Angelina County Sheriff's Department are still investigating other possible leads.
