ROSENBERG, Texas – Residents of Rosenberg are feeling a little nervous after two brazen crimes in the last few days.

Surveillance cameras were rolling when two burglars broke into the Zales Jewelry Store at the Brazos Town Center.

"That’s scary ‘cause I work over here and it’s kinda scary to see that’s happening right here," said Candace Scott of Rosenberg.

"I see that in Houston all the time. And it’s closer this way. That’s amazing," said Irma Vela, also of Rosenberg.

Across the highway, a 68-year-old man delivering newspapers was attacked outside a Starbucks.

Police monitor the shopping centers with video cameras. But that hasn’t stopped the criminals.

"It worries me because it could happen in your home," said Maria Gonzales.

The masked bandits who broke into the Zales didn’t get what they were looking for. The jewelry in the display cases had been put away for the night.
