Harris County, Texas (KTRK) – Authorities have arrested two men in connection with a violent home invasion in northern Harris County in which a woman was shot in the head with a gun in front of her three children.
Harris County PT. 4 people have identified Jorge Sacre, 27, and Robert Loredo, 27, as two of the suspects in the break-in. Both are charged with burglary with intent to commit aggravated assault, felony possession of a weapon and possession of a controlled substance.
pct. 4 said that Saqr got out of jail on a $100 bond for drunk driving and that Loredo got out on a $2,500 bond for burglary.
Deputies are still searching for a third suspect who managed to escape. Officials said they believed they knew who they were looking for.
Fortunately, the mother is fine after being hit in the head several times with a gun.
The home invasion occurred on the 1400 block of Tucumcari Drive around 10 p.m. Tuesday in the Ponderosa Forest neighborhood.
ABC13 spoke to the woman’s neighbor who also lives on Tucumcari Road. He said he noticed the suspects on his security cameras and was feeling bad.
A video from a neighbor, Clyde Lovings, shows a truck pull down the street, stop and turn off its headlights.
Three men got out and headed towards his neighbor’s house. Inside was a mother and her three children.
The suspects reportedly banged on the back door to gain entry. This is when the mother panicked and ran to hide with her children in the attic.
Lovings said his neighbor called him in a panic, telling him she had been hiding in the attic after three men broke in. Meanwhile, his wife had already called 911, telling the deputies to get to the house immediately.
The neighbor said he heard the woman screaming on the phone when the suspects found her family hiding. Lovings said he heard a man yell, “Where’s the money?” and threatens to kill her.
The woman told the deputies that the men forced them all down to her bedroom. They reportedly continued to demand that you show them the whereabouts of the money.
The woman told the suspects she didn’t have any money, but they could take whatever they wanted from the house – she just begged them not to hurt her children.
The deputies said the suspects left the room to ransack the house, leaving the mother and her children alone.
That’s when they got the chance to walk out the front door.
The Lovings’ video shows the family running away just as Pct. 4 deputy up.
From there, Lovings believes the suspects ran from behind and jumped a fence to get away.
Officer Mark Hermann says two suspects are caught – Sacker and Loredo – thanks to help from K9 Rambo.
Hermann said Loredo was taken to the hospital after being captured by Rambo and received several stitches.
The deputies said they searched the truck the suspects left at the scene and found cocaine.
The woman’s husband is a business owner, Herrmann said, and that may be why the family was targeted. The investigation is underway.
“We understand the homeowner owns a business, so we don’t know if he was targeted for this or what the actual motive was. This is still under investigation,” Herrmann said. “The third suspect that we have not obtained … we have an idea of his identity and I am sure he will be under arrest, hopefully in the next few hours,” he added.
