HOUSTON – A Harris County military veteran claims he was a victim of a carjacking in the parking lot of a Channelview grocery store two years ago and has filed a lawsuit over the event, according to recent state district court records.
Guillermo Reveiz’s suit against Capcor Partners, LLC and Gerland’s Food Fair, LLC, doing business as Food Town #214, asserts a lack of security resulted in the event on Dec. 28, 2015.
Court papers filed on Dec. 28 explain that an individual named Alejandro Guzman approached Reveiz and threatened the plaintiff’s life with a firearm. Guzman, who is a “known repeat offender of aggravated robbery,” the proceeded to take Reveiz’s wallet and wedding ring before ultimately carjacking his vehicle, the original petition says.
Per Reveiz, the store manager told him there was a security guard on the premises but he was not patrolling the area at the time of the incident. The business apparently lacked ample lighting and surveillance cameras as well.
Reveiz says the ordeal negatively impacted his mental health, stating he suffers from anxiety, flashbacks, and insomnia.
Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
He is represented by attorney Henry D. Drewinko of Houston.
