A College Station man awaiting six trials in Brazos County courts is arrested on new charges.

Wednesday night’s apprehension of 23 year old Karim El Himri inside the Coco Loco restaurant on Welsh involved six College Station police officers and a K-9 officer.

According to CSPD arrest reports, an ex-girlfriend was at the police department reporting he texted that he was in her apartment and threatened to hurt her and her unborn child.

That resulted in all the officers going to her apartment, where they did not find El Himri but discovered the front door was kicked open and the frame was damaged.

The officers then learned he was inside the restaurant. He was arrested there on charges of breaking into the apartment then evading and resisting arrest, along with a warrant charging him with the burglary of a home in June of last year.

As of Friday afternoon, El Himri remained jailed in lieu of bonds totaling $208,000 dollars.

El Himri is awaiting trials on charges of evading and resisting arrest from last month, misdemeanor theft from March, speeding in January, a vehicle burglary in January of last year, and two arrests from February of 2019 accusing him of stealing a gun and misdemeanor theft.
