didn't count on local Citizen Police Academy
graduates in the area taking action to track them
down; of course the CPA members didn't count on the
instigators to be so stupid as to return to the
scene of the crime.
Sunday evening in Colleyville neighborhoods are
typically quiet affairs. Just the way the
citizens like it. Friendly neighbors meet
while taking the garbage to the curb for Monday's
pickup, maybe talk to other friends that may be out
walking and generally get ready for a evening of a
little television then to bed for tomorrow's work
The site of 8 to 10 people walking down a
small neighborhood street late at night is not
typical. Less typical is a group crouching
down behind cars hiding. The site was enough
for some CPA grads to take notice and then swing
into action when the action started.
Around 9:00 pm one of the gang rang the doorbell at
1704 Gatehouse and coerced a victim out of the home
under false pretenses. Shortly thereafter the
culprit attacked the young victim with a flurry of
fists to the face. Problem was the victim
fought back and started pummeling the stupid
criminal. The obvious instigator, a young girl
that was not arrested; her parents must be proud,
started screaming for the rest of the posse to help
her "boyfriend" who was the recipient of a butt
whipping after he started the whole thing.
The victim was then pounced on by a group with thug
gang like action and after being knocked to the
ground was being kicked, including in the head, by
When realizing what was happening; one CPA alumni
sprinted to the victim's aid telling the attackers
they best leave the building, "so to speak."
When the attackers broke out in different directions
running from the scene; another alert CPA alumni
took after five of them in his vehicle and managed
to get the license plate of the get away car that
had been parked about 1/2 mile away.
After seeing that the victim was bloody and in some
distress; a call for a paramedic was added to the
information being given to police dispatch.
Veteran officer Todd
Hildebrandt was first on the scene and began
gathering information. About 9:30 pm a car,
fitting the description of the get away vehicle,
pulls in front of the house, but is blocked by
police cars and other vehicles from making a quick
retreat. In the meantime, a CPA alumni spots
the license plate and quickly informs officers on
the scene that the car was the target.
Colleyville Police sprung into action with guns
drawn and ordered the occupants out of the vehicle.
Four young adult boys and one female eventually
exited the vehicle and were handcuffed pending the
on site investigation.
After seeing the group, Officer Hildebrandt stated
that it wasn't hard to tie them to the crime since
two of the males still had blood on their clothes
All four were placed under arrests and charged with
assault causing bodily injury. There was
another group of males that used a jeep type vehicle
to make their get away and no further information
was available at posting time if they have been
