Elderly woman victim of a home invasion

By LeaAnne Klentzman

Sugar Land Police are still looking for the trio that terrorized and robbed an elderly resident on the morning of October 11, just before 10 a.m.

A 79 year old woman answered a knock at the front door of her home on Brush Field in far west Sugar Land. According to Sugar Land police spokesman Doug Adolph, the woman opened the door to a stranger.   “When she opened the door, a man displaying a handgun pushed his way into the house with two other men,” said Adolph.

Adolph said the woman was “detained” by one of the intruders as the others searched and ransacked her home looking for valuables.  In the end, the intruders fled with undisclosed property from the woman’s home.

Adolph said the elderly victim was not physically injured.The call to police was about an hour after the intruders fled the scene because the victim called her family before police were notified.

The suspect who reportedly knocked at the front door was described as a white male between the ages of 40-43 years old, 5′ 7″ to 5′ 8″.  His weight was approximated to be 170-180 pounds.  At the time he was wearing a green shirt and a baseball cap.  The second and third suspects were described as dark complected or black.  One was reported to be 45-48 years old; 5′ 10″ to 5’11”.

The third man had dark skin.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS.
