SAPD investigating 2 series of crimes on Northwest Side
One man arrested, police searching for man and woman
SAN ANTONIO – Police are investigating two separate series of crimes that are similar in nature but not in the alleged perpetrators.
On Monday, SAPD Chief William McManus addressed the media regarding six burglaries and robberies and two sexual assaults that have happened in the area of Wurzbach, Gardendale and Datapoint Drive since July.
SAPD is searching for two people who were caught on store surveillance cameras using credit cards stolen in those crimes.
McManus is asking anyone who recognizes the man and woman to call CrimeStoppers at 210-224-STOP.
Meanwhile, police have a man in custody for multiple burglaries, robberies and sexual assaults that happened from September 2012 to January 2013 along the I-10 corridor near Huebner Road.
U.S. Marshals arrested Cory Julian Gabriel, 23, in Houston on Sunday.
He will be brought back to San Antonio to face charges and potential prosecution.
McManus says investigators do not believe the suspects or persons of interest are connected in both situations, but the types of crimes are similar.
