A gun was pulled on a woman right outside of her residence in the 100 block of Forrest Avenue Saturday night. 

A car with two women and a man were parked outside the victim’s residence around 7 p.m. when she went outside to tell them to leave. According to Baytown police, a man approached the woman and pointed a handgun at her, telling her to go back inside. The three suspects then fled the area in a tan Pontiac passenger car. 

TV robbery fail

A Baytown man attempted to steal two televisions Sunday afternoon but was apprehended by Wal-Mart employees and customers, according to the Baytown Police Department. 

Baytown police said 21-year-old Cory Simpson attempted to steal 32-inch and 43-inch televisions, worth a total of $276. 

“As he passed all points of sale he was contacted by store employees at which time he struck one employee with the basket he was using and then ultimately struck another employee in the face with his fist,” Lt. Steve Dorris said. “The employees, with the assistance of customers, were able to detain Mr. Simpson until officers arrived and were able to take him into custody.” 

Simpson was then transported to the Baytown Jail and was charged with robbery.
