This is Fverswan Runnest Alfred. He is currently wanted for "Aggravated Robbery (Elderly)" from a July 2018 bank jugging offense. Alfred was in trial on Monday for his aggravated robbery case and decided that he did not want to stick around for the process. Alfred cut his ankle monitor off, jumped bail and has gone on the run.
As the aggravated robbery trial had already begun, trial continued... Tuesday, Fverswan Alfred was convicted of the aggravated robbery, in absentia. Today, a Harris County jury set his sentence at 29 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Unfortunately, Alfred cannot have his sentence entered until he is located, taken into custody, and brought back before the court.
The worst part about this situation is that it could have been prevented. In September of 2018, Alfred was caught in another bank jugging scheme and evaded arrest from Houston Police officers. At the time, Alfred had an open warrant for Burglary of a Motor Vehicle. Alfred crashed his vehicle and was taken into custody. Alfred, a 4x convicted felon and gang member, posted bond. While on bond, he was identified and charged in a July 2018 aggravated robbery, where he followed an elderly couple from a Houston area bank. While stealing the elderly woman's purse, Alfred fought with the woman's husband, assaulted him and used his vehicle in an attempt to run the man over (striking him with the vehicle).
Fverswan Alfred was taken into custody for his Aggravated Robbery of the Elderly warrant and allowed to post bond with an ankle monitor. Alfred violated his bond conditions multiple times and numerous ankle monitor violations were reported. Alfred's bond was revoked in February of 2019. After being captured and taken back into custody, Alfred was allowed to have his bonds reinstated and put back out on the street.
Thank you to our Harris County Special Crimes Division prosecutors who worked tirelessly on convicting this violent predator. Once he is captured (again), he will not be eligible for parole for at least 14 1/2 years. That will keep countless citizens safe from this criminal.
