Odessa police say that the driver of the Jeep Wrangler has now been identified and is cooperating with detectives.

No arrests have been made at this time. The investigation is ongoing.


The Odessa Police Department is searching for the driver of a jeep who they say intentionally hit a man in a Rosa's parking lot.

According to Odessa police, the crime happened on June 2 at the Rosa's parking lot on East 42nd Street.

A woman told police that she was walking in the parking lot with her son and granddaughter when a Jeep Wrangler drove recklessly nearby.

Her son yelled and told the driver to slow down, who made a U-turn and began driving in their direction with a door open.

The door then hit the woman's son and the suspect drove away from the scene. The son was taken to Medical Center Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect's vehicle is described as a newer model tan Jeep Wrangler with a light bar over the windshield that has four Baja-style lights.

Anyone who recognizes the vehicle is asked to contact Detective J. Caid at 432-335-4943 or Odessa Crime Stoppers at 432-333-TIPS and reference Case #19-21458.
