Robbers Hold Gun To 5-Year-Old Girl's Head During Home Invasion
Houston, TX – Houston police are searching for a group of six armed robbers who kicked in the front door of a home and proceeded to pistol-whip a man and hold a gun to a five-year-old girl’s head (video below).
The incident occurred just after 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 17, security footage showed.
The suspects, most of whom were wearing masks or hoods pulled over their faces, pulled up outside a home in the 10000-block of Neuens Road in the Spring Branch neighborhood and made their way through a gate to a side door, KHOU reported.
According to the victim’s daughter, who was not present at the time of the attack, the suspects began banging on the door and claimed they were the police.
They ultimately kicked the door in and made their way inside, the video showed.
Several of them were carrying handguns.
A handful of family members were inside the home at the time of the attack, including children, KHOU reported.
The suspects ordered them to hand over their money and other valuables, but they didn’t have enough to satisfy them.
That’s when the robbers grabbed one of the men and forced him to knock on the neighbor’s door, where other members of the family live, KHOU reported.
They forced their way inside and pistol-whipped the man they’d dragged along from the first apartment.
They then grabbed a five-year-old girl who had been sleeping in the second home, held a gun to her head, and threatened to murder her if her family members didn’t hand over their money, KHOU reported.
The armed robbers fled the scene with the victims’ valuables when they heard police sirens in the distance.
None of the victims were seriously hurt during the attack, KHOU reported.
Houston police released security footage from the home in an effort to help identify the home intruders, and a $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to their arrests.
