July 16, 2019 — Around 3:00 a.m. this morning, a 60-year-old San Angelo woman was sent to Shannon Medical Center for treatment of non-incapacitating injuries after she was involved in a hit and run collision in the 2400 block of the East Houston Harte Frontage Road. 

A crash investigation revealed the suspect vehicle, a 2015 Ford Fusion, was recently stolen from a residence in the 2900 block of McGill Boulevard.  Following the collision, a male suspect reportedly fled the crash scene and ran to a nearby Chevy Silverado flatbed pickup, which had been stolen from the same residence.  Both vehicles were reportedly left unlocked with their respective keys left inside. 

Within the immediate hours following the incidents, six non-forced entry vehicle burglaries were reported in the 2600 – 2800 block of McGill Boulevard and a firearm was listed amongst the assortment of stolen items. 

The Department is urging the public to please LOCK your vehicles, TAKE your keys, and REMOVE all valuable items and firearms from your vehicles.

July 10, 2019 — A 34-year-old Grape Creek man is facing several charges after he committed several crimes but failed to escape pursuing officers during an early morning foot chase in East San Angelo. 

Around 5:15 a.m. this morning, San Angelo Police were dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of Churchill Boulevard for the report of an unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in progress.  While en route to the call, Officers observed the stolen Toyota Tacoma pickup fleeing the area.  

Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop in the 1500 block of South Bell Street but the suspect bailed out and ran into the backyard of a private residence.  The suspect, later identified as Rusty Bryant, was apprehended after a brief foot chase and taken into custody without further incident. 

During the follow-up investigation, Officers learned Bryant had obtained the truck’s keys and a wallet during the commission of a recent burglary.  Bryant reportedly used the victim’s bank cards and subsequently acquired the victim’s home address.  

Just after 5:00 a.m. this morning, the victims heard the truck’s horn sound as if someone pushed the key fob and when they ran outside to check on the truck; Bryant drove over the male homeowner while trying to escape.  The homeowner was transported to Community Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.  

Following an interview with Detectives from the Department’s Criminal Investigations Division, Bryant was charged with Aggravated Robbery, Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, and Evading Arrest Detention.  Additional charges are pending the outcome of this ongoing Investigation.
