警方对 22 岁的查尔斯·宋·欧文斯发出逮捕令, charging him with aggravated robbery 在四月 24, 2022. 调查人员对欧文斯进行了调查，发现了其他一些暴力事件.
Two days before the alleged robbery, a caller reported that a man driving a Black Dodge Charger pulled a gun on them.
Before the April 24 抢劫, officers responded to a disturbance involving a man who was accused of waving a gun at a hotel. An officer located Owens at the scene and attempted to detain and frisk him, but he fled on foot towards a Black Dodge Charger, 警察说.
Officers detained and arrested Owens. Officers searched Owens and seized two handguns and a quantity of suspected methamphetamine, 警察说. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance, evading on foot, unlawful carrying of a weapon – all misdemeanors.
在5月 7, a caller reported a man exited a black Dodge Charger while in traffic. The man approached the other driver and assaulted the victim, 警察说. The man then returned to the Dodge Charger, got in, and drove aggressively in front of the victim, swerving into the victim’s vehicle, 警察说.
在5月 25, a woman named Veronica Lucero reported that her daughter, Jazelynn Lucero, told her that her ex-boyfriend, Charles Owens, followed her off a highway onto East Riverside Drive, Austin and fired multiple shots at her vehicle, 警察说.
第二天, members of the Violent Crimes Task Force began surveilling Owens’ residence in the 7900 block of Annalise Drive in Austin. Officers watched Owens drive to a nearby convenience store where he allegedly got into a physical confrontation with another man in the parking lot. Officers also watched Owens strike a victim with a pistol, according to the criminal complaint. He then drove back to his residence.
Because of his alleged ongoing, violent behavior, police determined that Owens posed an “imminent threat” to the public and decided to take him into custody the next time he left his residence.
VCTF members later observed Owens leaving his residence and executed a vehicle containment, blocking Owens’ car on all sides. Officers identified themselves and commanded Owens to put his hands out the window where they could be seen.
Police said Owens refused to comply with demands and accelerated his vehicle into the front block vehicle, causing his tires to screech. Owens ultimately escaped the vehicle containment and fled in his vehicle, 警察说. He was later located and taken into custody.
According to the criminal complaint, which Fox has obtained, Owens has had prior arrests for aggravated robbery stemming from incidents in late 2019. Those charges were either dismissed or rejected.
Online records indicate Owens is now being held at the Travis County Correctional Complex.
