The two suspects in the February stabbing and robbery of a 69-year-old man at the Motel 6 on North Bryant Boulevard have been indicted by a Tom Green County grand jury.
Elizabeth Tackett and Eddie Lynn Tackett, both listed in Tom Green County Jail records as residents of Fort Collins, Colorado, were indicted on a charge of aggravated robbery.
According to a February press release from the San Angelo Police Department, at 1:30 a.m. Feb. 3, officers responded to a report of a robbery at the Motel 6, 311 N. Bryant Blvd. When they arrived, officers met with the victim, Kenneth Riza.
Riza told police he had met a male and a female by the pool. He said when he went back to his room, the two followed him and forced their way into his room. Riza said the male suspect, identified as Eddie Tackett, threatened him with a knife and tied him up. At some point the male suspect stabbed Riza with the knife. The pair took all of Riza’s property and left in Riza’s vehicle.
After the Tacketts left, Riza was free himself and call the police. Riza was transported to Shannon Medical Center and admitted for treatment.
Aggravated robbery is a first degree felony punishable by five-99 years confinement and a fine up to $10,000.
Pre-trial hearings for the pair are scheduled for Aug. 2.
