An East County mother and her four children were terrorized by a brutal home invasion that began with a man dressed as someone for whom almost anyone would open their door.

Around 11 a.m. Friday, a black male knocked at the door of a home in the Kings Manor Subdivision in the part of Kingwood that is in Montgomery County. The man was wearing a United States Postal Service uniform and carrying a package.

When the female homeowner opened the door, the man suddenly forced the door wide open and began punching her in the face as he headed inside. He was soon followed by three armed black males who also entered the home. They dragged the bleeding woman on the floor to the kitchen and told her to remain face down as they bound her. Next, they went to her 13-year-old son and bound his wrists with zip ties. They forced three other children, 2, 5, and 9 years old, to the living room and told them not to move. After searching the lower half of the home they took the 13-year-old who had been asleep, at gunpoint upstairs forcing him to tell them where money and valuables were. When the boy said he did not know, the men became violent and also threatened to kill him.

They ransacked the upstairs of the home taking several thousand dollars in cash, jewelry and electronics including Play stations and Xboxes. Then they discovered a briefcase containing the family’s passports and other legal documents. After almost 30 minutes in the home, the bandits fled.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office spent almost 6 hours investigating the scene.

Around 6:30 p.m. detectives left the scene without commenting or providing any information. MCPR attempted to contact MCSO officials and left messages.

Video of interviews with the victims will be posted soon.
