HOUSTON – Police said a man is in custody after breaking into the homes of two different women in west Houston Tuesday.

It was a scary encounter for two separate female homeowners who found a stranger in their bedroom. Police said one of the women in the 1200 block of Normans Woods Street and the other in 12800 block of Kings Ridge Lane.

Police said at 2:05 a.m., a 69-year-old woman woke up and saw the man, who has been identified as Christopher O’Bryant, 36, in her bedroom holding her phone. Officers said she screamed for him to get out and he left through a neighbor’s backyard. The woman was able to call 9-1-1.

At 2:25 a.m., police said O’Bryant was inside the home of a 38-year-old woman. Officers said the woman woke up to the sound of a police helicopter and noticed a man standing in front of her bed. They said O’Bryant, who was wearing a mask, repeatedly asked the 38-year-old woman for sex. Investigators said the suspect attempted to get on top of of the woman but left once she told him her husband would be home soon.

Police said O’Bryant was taken into custody while trying to leave the neighborhood and even asked officers how to get out of the gated community. It is unclear how he was able to enter the neighborhood.

O’Bryant could face two burglary charges, investigators said.

Police said none of the women were hurt.
