HOUSTON -

Two men posed as police officers and terrorized a woman as she left her southeast Houston home on Wednesday.

The woman said she walked out the front door of her home in the 800 block of Woodbine and as she turned after locking her gate, she saw two men pointing guns at her.

The woman said the men spoke Spanish and claimed to be police officers. She said they wore T-shirts with "police" written across their chests.

The men claimed to be there to serve a warrant for her arrest, the woman said.

The woman said she knew that was not true because she had not done anything wrong. She said she also noticed that the men were not wearing uniform pants or belts, and there was not a patrol car around.

When one of the men tried to grab her car keys, the woman broke free and ran to a neighbor's home. The men jumped in their car, a white Ford Mustang, and left. She said it appeared to be a 1980s model.

The woman said one of the men is Hispanic, about 30 years old and about 6 feet 2 inches tall. The other man is black, about 30 years old and about 5 feet 2 inches tall.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
