Suspects assault man, burglarize his home

Pit bull foils police pursuit


Cleburne police continue their search for two suspects responsible for assaulting and robbing a man and later burglarizing his home on Thursday.

Police responded at 9:10 p.m. to the 4100 block of County Road 417A.

The victim said that earlier that same day two men, possibly Hispanic, assaulted him as he was getting into his vehicle in the 1600 block of West Henderson Street and stole his wallet.

The victim said he was buckling his seat belt when one of the suspects opened the door, pulled him from his vehicle, threw him from the ground and began hitting him with closed fists.

The victim said the suspect hitting him told the second suspect to grab the victim’s wallet. 

The first suspect told the victim, “Don’t do anything [expletive deleted] stupid like call the police because we have your driver’s license and know your address,” according to police reports.

The victim told police he did not report the robbery at that time because he was concerned about his mother’s safety. The victim said he decided to report it later after learning that his parents’ house had been burglarized.

Johnson County Sheriff’s Office deputies were also on scene taking a burglary report when Cleburne police arrived.

Investigation into the incident continues. 


Dog interferes 

with police business

Police responded at 7:22 a.m. Saturday to North Anglin Street on an assault call. The victim told police the suspect was still inside the house. Upon entering, police heard breaking glass in the rear of the home and spotted the suspect running away. An officer pursuing the suspect was stopped by a pit bull, according to reports. By the time the officer managed to get clear of the dog the suspect was gone. Police searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.
