Brandon Mohamed Arrested by Jefferson County SO and Beaumont PD

BEAUMONT – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Texas Ranger Division is investigating today the kidnapping of a South Carolina victim rescued by law enforcement officers in Beaumont yesterday afternoon.

Texas Rangers and law enforcement investigators assisting in this investigation believe the victim was kidnapped by Brandon Mohamed, 20, near the victim’s residence in Rockhill, South Carolina, late Sunday night or early Monday morning. Mohamed was seen driving in Liberty, Texas, where Liberty Police Officers attempted to stop the vehicle after suspecting criminal activity. Texas Rangers believe Mohamed was driving a stolen vehicle when officers spotted him in Liberty.

Mohamed fled from law enforcement officers until crashing in Beaumont on College Street (US 90) near IH-10. Following the collision, Mohamed fled from the scene on foot, and law enforcement officers rescued the victim. Paramedics treated her for minor injuries at the scene.

Texas Rangers, Texas Highway Patrol Troopers, DPS Special Agents, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputies and Beaumont Police Officers continued searching throughout the night for Mohamed.

Mohamed has active felony warrants from South Carolina for violent offenses, and investigators in Texas have filed additional felonious offenses, including aggravated kidnapping and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

This afternoon, at approximately 2:30p.m., Brandon Mohamed was apprehended by Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputies and Beaumont Police Officers, near the intersection of Blossom and Washington Blvd.  He was placed in custody and transported to jail by Beaumont Police Officers.  At this time, Mohamed faces several felony charges.

Additional information is not available for release at this time as this remains an active and ongoing criminal investigation involving several law enforcement agencies.
