HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A man was beaten and robbed after returning home from the store on Christmas Eve. The attack was captured on surveillance video around 8 p.m.
The victim was walking into his apartment complex when three men attacked. He was kicked and punched repeatedly.
The victim said the men were demanding a phone, so he gave them his own phone.
Detectives say, what the victim didn’t know at the time, was that the suspects had lost one of their phones and they tracked it. It led them to a southwest Houston apartment complex and the victim just happened to be walking by at the wrong time.
All three were arrested and charged with robbery, including 23-year-old Faisal Abuamarah, 19-year-old Abdulazzez Abdulkhaliq, and 20-year-old Samuel Ibeson. All three had previous criminal records.
