New documents reveal that one person arrested in connection to a series of Dallas driveway robberies has confessed to an attack.
According to documents obtained exclusively by NBC 5, 51-year-old Charles Hunt confessed to holding up an Irving mother, Pamela Larr, on Feb. 19. Hunt admitted to using one of her stolen credit cards at a 7-Eleven in Euless. He even told police, “he picked out victims he thought would not fight or carry weapons.”
“I thought not without a fight," Larr said. "I’m just not gonna go down like that."
Larr fought Hunt off when he approached her with a gun.
“A guy put a gun in front of my face and said, ‘I don’t want to have to shoot you. Give me your purse,’ and I said, ‘Why don’t you just get on out of here,’ and he just kind of looked at me and said, ‘Give me your purse,’” Larr said. "And I saw the gun right there and I pushed it away.”
Larr remembers thinking the gun felt odd. Hunt later confessed to using a toy gun. He told police he “would never hurt anyone.”
After a struggle, Larr said she broke a clipboard on Hunt’s head. She still has bruises from the attack.
The Dallas Police Department announced on Feb. 21 that Hunt and 27-year-old Santana Andrews were arrested connected to the robberies. Maj. Jeff Cotner said the two were arrested at Feb. 20, following the report of a driveway robbery that same evening on N. Montclair Avenue.

According to the documents, when Hunt was pulled over and arrested, he was carrying stolen credit cards — including one that belonged to Larr.
“My first thing that I thought of was, ‘Thank you God for letting this happen so quick,’” Larr said. “I think about it all the time. I wake up thinking about it, when I leave the house I think about it, when I come home I think about it. If I hear a noise, I think about it.”
