HOUSTON, Texas — A reward up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of an "armed and dangerous" gang member wanted on numerous felony charges that span more than a year during a violent crime spree, the Houston Crime Stoppers and Houston Police Department announced today.
Police are asking for the public's assistance locating 24-year-old Alan Eleizer Reyes, who police say is a confirmed gang member.
Reyes has been charged in five violent felonies, including engaging in organized criminal activity, deadly conduct, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and two counts of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury, according to police.
Reyes' alleged crime spree began in January 27, 2019, when police say he confronted two males in a nightclub in the 400 block of West Little York and assaulted them, causing serious bodily injury. Reyes was subsequently charged with two counts of aggravated assault causes serious bodily injury and warrants were issued for his arrest.
On December 1, 2019, Reyes was allegedly trespassing at an apartment complex in the 3000 block of Blaylock when he was asked to leave by an apartment complex attendant. Reyes, according to police, fired several rounds at the attendant as he was leaving, narrowly missing him and striking the building. He was charged with deadly conduct and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in this incident.
On April 3, 2020, Reyes was at an apartment complex in the 1800 block of Wirt when he had a confrontation with a male who was affiliated with a rival gang, according to police. Reyes punched and kicked the male before pulling out a handgun and firing at the male 10 times, striking him five times. In this incident, Reyes was charged with engaging in organized criminal activity because police say the assault and shooting were gang related.
"Alan Reyes has eluded police since his first charge in early 2019 and his whereabouts are currently unknown," read today's statement from police.
Police say Reyes should be considered armed and dangerous due to the fact he was in possession of a firearm in each of the listed confrontations.
Crime Stoppers may pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and/or arrest of the suspect in this case. Information may be reported by calling 713-222-TIPS (8477) or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org
