Teen confesses to murder after throwing rocks at police near San Antonio store, according to affidavit

While the teen was being questioned by SAPD he confessed to committing murder back in February.

SAN ANTONIO — A teen confessed to murdering a man last month while being questioned by SAPD for an arrest made near a Dollar Tree on the northwest side, according to an affidavit. 

Sebastian Segovia, 19, was arrested Friday for criminal mischief and evading arrest. While being questioned by SAPD officers Segovia confessed to stabbing a man in the neck and was charged with capital murder.

A Dollar Store manager on the 3000 block of Fredericksburg Road requested SAPD officers stand outside as he closed because he feared a teen who had caused a disturbance earlier would return, according to the arrest paperwork. 

As officers waited, Segovia arrived at the store and started throwing rocks. He hit a patrol car, and was then chased by officers, who arrested him.

While Segovia was being questioned, he confessed to committing a murder at the Sorrento Apartments on Feb. 23. 

Segovia told police when he was homeless and looking for someone to rob, he stabbed a man in the neck three times who was sitting by himself at the apartments. Afterwards he pushed the man into some bushes and took his wallet. 

Segovia described in detail the contents of the man's wallet as a social security card, gift cards, VIA bus card, library card and COVID vaccine card, the affidavit says. 

Segovia admitted the man might have had special needs after hearing him say "I'm sorry" as he stabbed him. The man was autistic according to the affidavit.
