A woman, her daughter, and a male friend were victims to driveway robbers Sunday, September 2, shortly before 11 p.m. Fort Bend Sheriff’s deputies were called to investigate this driveway robbery in the 14700 block of Sierra Valle Drive in the Mission Bend subdivision.
Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel said, “The victims told the deputies two unknown persons took items from them and threatened them.” He went on to explain that the female victim told officers that she and her daughter arrived at her mother-in-law’s home on Sierra Valle at about 10:50. When they got out of the car, they were accosted by two men, armed with pistols.
According to Haenel, one of the suspects pushed the woman against a car while he was grabbing her purse. A male friend witnessed the attack and attempted to come to the women’s aid. Haenel said the friend tried to intervene but was forced back by another gun wielding suspect. He too became a victim as the duo forced the intervening friend to give up his wallet.
According to Haenel, the duo got away with cash, credit cards, a cell phone, and an iPod.
