Teen violently beaten outside his Richmond home in identity confusion case

FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) – The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the violent assault by a teenager outside his Richmond-area home.

“It hurts. I don’t like to say it that way, but it’s really hurting,” said the teenager, who asked to remain anonymous.

The attack happened around 11:45 a.m. Sunday when the teen said he was coming home from work. He parked his truck in the driveway and when he opened the door of his car, he was attacked.

“I was pulled outside, and I was right on the ground. Lie down, knocked over and they just hit me and hit me,” the teenager said.

He said three men with guns surrounded him, pistols whipped to the back of his head while making demands.

“Ask me, ‘Where’s the tape, where’s the tape?’ And for me, stones are jewelry, just like what I was thinking, and I said, “Well, all I have is my necklace. It’s like I have a watch, a phone, just take whatever you want,” he said.

But the men did not take his necklace, watch or phone. Deputies told the family that the ‘ice’ the suspects were looking for could be crystal meth.

“I was in front of the gun. All three of them, at some point, put the gun to my head. I thought I was going to die,” he said. “I closed my eyes, I prayed one last time. I said, ‘If this is my time, God, it’s my time.'”

The victim said he was unconscious for several minutes and when he finally returned, the suspects looked at him closely.

“Then he said, ‘Well, check out his face.’ They lifted my face, looked at me and he said, ‘Oh, (obviously), that’s the wrong person,” the teen explained.

With his family fast asleep inside, the teen said he tried to stay quiet while being beaten. In moments of pain and fear, his instinct is to protect his parents and inner siblings. He didn’t want them to face violence. After surviving the attack, the teen said he still wants to protect others.

“I consider myself a tough guy. I was a tough kid. I could take those beatings, but imagine if it was an old person, a pregnant woman, a child,” he said. speak.

The boy’s family said they would increase security measures on their property and urged others to do the same.

“Who would have thought that in your own home that would happen? I never thought it would happen in my own home, and it happened right in my driveway,” the teen said. .

The victim was taken to hospital on Sunday night, where he received pins for his head injuries. The wounds to his head and hands would heal, but it was the internal emotional trauma he said that changed his opinion.

“It was an opening for me that tomorrow is not promised, and you never know when your time will come,” the victim said.
