Killeen police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two men who robbed a homeless man last week.

The robbers stole a necklace from a man about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday in front of a store in the 2100 block of South W.S. Young Drive.

The two men spoke to the man briefly, entered the store, and took the homeless man’s necklace when they left the store. One of the men pushed the victim to the ground when he tried to get his necklace back.

One of the suspects is a black male about 21 to 25 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing about 180 pounds. During the robbery, he wore a plaid shirt and blue jeans.

The other suspect is a black male about 21 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds. He wore a black shirt, gray sweatpants and a red skullcap during the robbery.

The suspects then left in a white Chevrolet Cavalier with a black front bumper and red bumper with a mismatched unknown color.

Police are asking anyone who knows the identity of the suspects to contact Crime Stoppers. Call (254) 526-TIPS, go to or text BELLCO along with the tip to 274637.

All tips are confidential and can be made anonymously. A tip leading to an arrest may be eligible for a $1,000 award.

Contact Philip Jankowski at or (254) 501-7553

Seriously? Seeking information for a homeless man's stolen necklace? KPD needs to focus on real crime & making city's residential areas safer. Get more officers to hit the streets & patrol more. Stories on burglary of Ramen noodles by Conder Park, citing traffic violations & piddly issues KPD works on are getting old.
