Two men visiting Corpus Christi from Arizona got into a verbal argument with a large group of males at a convenience store on Padre Island and that led to them being assaulted.

Corpus Christi Police responded to the Stripes Store, located at 14526 South Padre Island Drive after everyone had left.  They were told that a 24 year old man exited the store, and as he was walking to his car, he started yelling at a large group of men that were in the parking lot.

The group of about 8 to 9 men walked over and began to fight with the man that was yelling and his 33 year old friend.  After the fight, everyone involved left the area.

Officers did get a call a few minutes later from the two men who had pulled over into the Wal Mart Store parking lot, located at 1250 Flour Bluff Drive.  The younger man who had started yelling at the group had been beaten and was stabbed once on the head.  His older friend was stabbed on the right arm and had a small cut on his chest.

Injuries to both men were non-life threatening, but the two were both transported by CCFD EMS to Spohn Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Corpus Christi Police Officers responded to a call about a man trying to get into the night deposit box of the Buccaneer Apartments located at 100 Buccaneer Drive.

When Officers arrived they found a 2008 Ford Escape parked  near the office. There was a female standing outside of the vehicle and a male and another female attempting to duck down and hide themselves inside the SUV.

The male in the back seat, Albert Falkenberg Jr. (04/12/1989), admitted to having marijuana in the vehicle. As officers continued to investigate, they found several money orders made out to the Buccaneer Apartments and two other apartment complexes in the vehicle.

Officers also found mouse glue traps with string attached. Officers believe that the glue traps were used to pull the money orders from the night deposit box of the different apartment complexes.

Officers were able to contact a female witness who saw the male using the string to pull out envelopes from the night deposit box at the Buccaneer Apartments office door.

When Officers located the money orders inside the suspect’s vehicle, one of them had already been washed.  The female who had earlier attempted to hide herself when Officers approached her, had written her name on the money order.

The male was arrested for burglary and possession of marijuana. The female who had put her name on the money order, Erika Gonzalez (01/19/1993), was arrested for forgery and burglary. The other female with the group, Wendy Rodriguez (12/09/1995) was also arrested for burglary.
