On Oct. 17 around 9:19 a.m., Rosenberg Police Officers responded to a call about a suspect in a maroon Nissan 350Z vehicle that was chasing and firing rounds at a SERVPRO van.

Officers learned that the suspect had initially parked at the SERVPRO Restoration Services business, 1607 Rice Street, and pointed a gun at one employee before taking off after the second employee driving the SERVPRO van.

Officers spotted the two vehicles on Bernie Street and gave chase. The vehicles stopped, and officers were able to safely apprehend the suspect in the maroon Nissan 350Z. The suspect was identified as 47-year-old Robert Vetter of Rosenberg. Vetter was allegedly wearing a tactical ballistic vest and had a handgun along with multiple rounds of ammunition. Vetter was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police say they found no motive for his actions.

Vetter was previously arrested on Oct. 12, after he allegedly trespassed onto a resident’s property without their consent and was told to leave. Rosenberg PD arrested Vetter and charged him with criminal trespass.

“We are fortunate that no one was injured during this incident,” said Rosenberg Police Chief Jonathan White. “Thank you to the officers who responded quickly and arrested this violent offender. Officer J. Manriquez was at the right place, at the right time to quickly intervene.”
