HPD Investigative First Responder Division Officer D. Crowder reported provided additional details of the crime: “Mr. Kennedy was picked up by Johnson and taken to an ATM at the Wells Fargo Bank at the above address. Johnson threatened the victim with a knife and forced him to withdraw funds from the ATM. When Kennedy did not withdraw funds, Johnson attempted to take his wallet, at which point a struggle ensued and Johnson stabbed Kennedy multiple times. Witnesses overheard the suspect yelling that he was going to kill Kennedy. Johnson then fled in a waiting Mercury Grand Marquis in an unknown direction. Kennedy was left in the bank’s drive-through lanes. He was transported by paramedics to Memorial Hermann Hospital and treated for his wounds.”

Surveillance video of the suspect was released on the HPD YouTube channel. A Crime Stoppers tip led to the identification and apprehension of Johnson; he was taken into custody without incident.
