Mom: Suspects pointed gun at my daughter during home robbery

The pair allegedly pointed a gun at the young woman and her daughter who were home at the time

HOUSTON - Investigators are searching for two juvenile suspects in connection to a home invasion that happened Wednesday afternoon in north Harris County.

The incident happened in the 4000 block of Monteith near Whittaker Way. According to the residents, two males in their teens knocked on the door twice and asked for a female teenager, who was in school at the time.

When the juveniles returned a third time, they were wearing masks -- one had on a Zorro-like mask and the other a Halloween monster mask -- and forced their way through the front door at gun point.

"I tried to hurry up and close it, but he put the gun in the crack of the door and I couldn't close it," said the young woman who was at home with her 2-year-old daughter. "He pointed the gun at me, telling me to get back, get back, and my daughter started screaming and he pointed the gun at her."

She says the suspects locked her and her daughter in the closet while they helped themselves to the families possessions, including electronics. The suspects took off on foot.

After they left, the woman ran to a neighbor's home and called 9-1-1. The Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office responded.

"At this time, we are having an active investigation. Our units in the area are looking for these two young men," said Lt. David Escobar. "They appear to be in their teens, possibly juveniles. One wearing a black hoodie, one wearing a red hoodie. Both had short dreadlocks."
Lt. Escobar said the suspects face felony home invasion and aggravated robbery charges.
