Each week Crimestoppers asks the public to help with unsolved cases or to help locate wanted fugitives.
During the holiday season, we will be asking for help with cases that are sometimes called “cold” cases. CrimeStoppers would love to give closure to the victim’s families for Christmas.
This week Crime Stoppers needs your help solving the murder of Frank Anthony Roberts.
On Friday, July 4, 2014 at 6:15pm, Frank Anthony Roberts (AKA “BIG Poke”) was walking on a sidewalk in Washington Manor, 2950 S 8th. when a silver SUV attempted to run him over. Roberts was able to avoid being hit by the vehicle, but fell to the ground and was shot one time in the side. The driver put the vehicle in reverse and attempted to try and run over Roberts again before fleeing south bound on 8th Street. One of the witnesses said the vehicle resembled a Nissan Murano. Roberts was transported to Christus St Elizabeth and died from his injuries on July 16, 2014.
If you have any information that will help give Big Poke’s family closure for Christmas, contact Crime Stoppers at 409-833-TIPS.
