WFPD Captures Suspect Who Held Texoma Teens at Gunpoint

Wichita Falls police say they've arrested a man who held a 19 year old girl and her 3 friends at gunpoint.

The aggravated robbery happened early in the morning on January 22nd at LaDonna Place Apartments off of Southwest Parkway in Wichita Falls.

Police say the robber knocked on the door. When it was opened, he had two pistols and forced his way into the apartment.

According to police once inside, the suspect demanded the cell phones and wallets from everyone in the apartment.

Police now say that man is 22-year-old Don Earl Goffney. According to the arrest affidavit, witnesses told officers Goffney threatened to kill their families if they called police.

On the same morning of the crime, police say one of the victim's phones was found in a dumpster at the Sun Valley Apartment Complex. One resident was discovered to match the suspect description and was identified as Don Goffney. The victims identified Goffney through a photo line-up.

The complex is a member of the crime free program which is committed to keeping criminals off the property. Every new resident must agree to the Crime Free Lease Addendum which according to the paperwork "specifies a zero tolerance policy for illegal activity on or near the property."
