CORPUS CHRISTI - A homeowner called police and our newsroom to share surveillance video of a man she believes is involved in Tuesday's home invasions across town. Police confirmed these photos from the area of Staples and Lipes show the Volkswagen Jetta and one of the suspects in the other cases.
The Hispanic man who appears to be in his 20's is seen with a white cloth over his face as he prepares to break into a parked car. The homeowner told us her husband was ready to go after the guy if he actually got into the house. We're told the robber was banging on the side door of the home. The masked man eventually left the area just after 7 p.m.
According to the timeline from police, this incident happened after a 14-year-old on Fitzhugh awoke to find a man inside his house with a baseball bat. That man also ran away from the scene.
About half an our later, a woman on Greenbriar reported as many as three men who arrived in a Volkswagen Jetta tried to get into her home. Police did provide surveillance images from a home where the men can be seen breaking into a car. Again, the Jetta is in the background.
