HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — A capital murder suspect out on bond and awaiting trial has been arrested in connection with a carjacking and robbery case that resulted in injury, according to police.
On September 13, 2019, a woman was carjacked in her driveway in the 7800 block of Chatham Springs in Cypress, Texas.
Deputies with Harris County Precinct 5 Constable's Office, which are investigating the carjacking, had already taken three juveniles in custody and, through the course of their investigation, identified 22-year-old Justin Archangel as a fourth suspect.
Archangel was located and arrested without incident on Thursday, October 3, 2019, in the 10600 block of Jones Road.
“People in Houston should be able to be safe in their own driveway,” stated Constable Ted Heap. “Our deputies did a great job getting this wanted suspect in custody so that he can hopefully not be a threat to others.”
Archangel, according to Harris County records obtained by MyTexasDaily.com, has now been charged with robbery causes bodily injury and is being held on a $75,000 bond and no bond in the capital murder case.
Archangel was previously arrested in July 2017 and charged with capital murder in Harris County. In October 2018, Archangel's attorney filed a motion to set bail in the case and was granted a $150,000 bond amount which was posted on March 15, 2019 — resulting in his release from the Harris County Jail.
In his application for bail, his attorney states, "...the circumstances of the offense do no indicate that any other person nor the public at large would be in danger should the defendant secure his release while awaiting trial."
Archangel's capital murder charge stems from the shooting death of Bruce Brown on December 6, 2016, during the course of an alleged robbery, according to a criminal complaint and felony indictment sheet obtained by MyTexasDaily.com. Archangel was originally held on no bond in the case.
