Woman accosted by three men posing as cable company workers

By LeaAnne Klentzman

Tuesday afternoon, May 23, about 1:40p.m., a Mission Bend woman was inside her home in the 7400 block of Tetela Drive when she saw three men wearing Comcast shirts in her backyard. Right after she saw them, her power went off, said sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel. So the resident went out to the backyard to find out was going on.

Haenel said, “The three subjects gained entry to the house, pushed the victim to the floor and demanded money and the keys to the vehicle in the garage.” After that confrontation, the victim told deputies she grabbed her car keys and bolted out the front door to a neighbor’s home.

Although the three fled the area on foot a witness told deputies that the trio may have fled the area in a red Honda CRV.

The suspects were described as two black males and one white or Hispanic male. One suspect was described as a white or Hispanic male, between the ages of 30-35, 6′ and weighing about 230 pounds. He had black hair. Along with the Comcast shirt, he was wearing blue jeans and possibly wearing a baseball cap.

The second suspect was described as a black male about 30-35, between 5’9″ to 5’11″ and weighed about 220 pounds. He had black hair and wore black shorts with his Comcast shirt. He also had a small silver and black pistol. The third suspect was a black male in his late 20s or early 30s, 6’2″,and weighed about 180 pounds. He was wearing a Comcast shirt, blue jeans and black gloves.

Anyone with information which leads to the arrest or conviction of these suspects could earn a reward of up to $5,000.
