Investigators conclude no armed robbery occurred in parking garage

Texas Children’s Security Services was informed of an alleged armed robbery in Garage 21 at Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women on Saturday, March 31, and immediately communicated the information that we had to all physicians and employees to allow individuals to take additional safety precautions.

After a thorough investigation of the alleged incident, authorities have concluded that the report was falsely made. There was no robbery and no weapon.

At Texas Children’s, the safety and security of our patients, families, employees, providers, volunteers and visitors is of the highest priority. Although this report was not accurate, please continue to be vigilant about your safety. As always, Texas Children’s Security officers are available to escort employees to their cars. For escorts, call the Service Response Center at ext. 4-5400 or ask an officer for assistance. Please be aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious activity by calling 911 or the Texas Medical Center Police Department at 713-795-0000.

We regret any undue concern caused by the communication informing individuals of the alleged robbery.
