One in custody in aggravated robbery case

February 6, 2010 by Randy Keck

Parker County Sheriff’s Investigators announced late Friday afternoon that one man is in custody in connection with an aggravated robbery case on Monday, Feb. 8 in Azle, where a man was beaten with a pistol and robbed inside his residence.

The disabled victim reported two men entered his home, pistol-whipped him, and robbed him of an undisclosed amount of cash, fleeing the scene around 10:30 p.m. The man’s canine assisting German shepherd, “Major,” was shot and killed during the incident.

A family member of the victim chased the men in a pickup truck until she was fired upon by the suspects, striking her vehicle.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said the suspect was identified as Patrick Cox, 27, of Watauga. Cox was stopped earlier Friday by Watauga officers on traffic violations and is being held there. Parker County Sheriff’s investigators expect Cox to be extradited to Parker County on the aggravated robbery charges.

“We have obtained evidence linking the suspect to the crime and another arrest is pending for an accomplice,” Fowler said.

Due to the ongoing investigation, further details are being withheld. As the case unfolds and the investigation allows, details will be made public.
