Pervez “Perry” Sukari jokingly said that the men thought he was easy meat, Sukari said he was in the parking lot next to his town home in the 10800 block of Briar Forest Dr. about 4:20 p.m. on Wednesday, June 28.

Sukari said that when he got out of his car to walk home, he noticed four males walking past him. “They walked past me so I thought, ‘Well they’re just walking.' Then as I was walking towards my home I saw a shadow behind me,” Sukari said.

That’s when the men started demanding money, pushed him to the ground and started kicking him.

"I saw him pull his foot back to kick me again, so I held my hand in front of my face, caught his foot and I pushed him so he fell,” the 78-year-old recounted. “Unfortunately, he fell on the grass, if he would have fallen on the concrete it would have broken his head.”

He then stood up, started yelling and his assailants took off. He was left with a fractured nose and bruise on the left side of his face. The injuries have since healed after the ambulance crew checked him out.

Sukari said he’s pleased with the way he handled himself. Police are looking for four black men, approximately 16-20 years old.

The two men appeared to be about 5 feet ten inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing approximately 160-170 pounds with short hair, white shirts, and blue jeans.

The two other men were about 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing about 150-160 pounds. However, the description of what they were wearing has not been released.

Tipsters will be rewarded by Crime Stoppers up to $5,000 for information leading to charges. Information may be reported by calling 713-222-TIPS (8477) or submitted online at
