Suspects Wore Comcast Shirts
Fort Bend County Deputies are searching for three men who, they said, cut the power to a woman’s home and attacked her.
Deputies said the home invasion happened at a home in the 7400 block of Tetela Drive in Mission Bend about 2 p.m. Tuesday.
The woman said she saw three men wearing Comcast uniforms standing at her breaker box after her power went out. She questioned them and they claimed there were there to fix her cable. Police said the woman went back inside to call Comcast to confirm and one of the men followed her inside and held a gun to her face.
Police said the men pushed the woman to the ground then demanded cash and keys to her car. Later the woman said she screamed for help to a neighbor and that scared the men away. Officials said the suspects may have fled in a red Honda CRV.
The men didn’t take anything, but they did leave their gun behind, and police are looking into the gun.
One robber was described as a white or Hispanic man, 30 to 35 years old, about 6 feet tall and 230 pound with black hair. He was last seen wearing a Comcast shirt, blue jeans and possibly a baseball cap.
The second robber was described as a black man, 30 to 35 years old, 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall and about 220 pounds with black hair. He was seen wearing black shorts and he had a small silver and black pistol.
The third robber was a black man in his late 20s or early 30s, 6 feet 2 inches tall and about 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a Comcast shirt, blue jeans and black gloves.
Comcast said,"We are working with the Ft. Bend County Sherriff’s Office in their investigation and as a reminder, all official Comcast technicians are clearly identified not only by their clothing but also by an ID badge and a Comcast branded vehicle."
