DICKINSON A boy bound during a Wednesday home invasion grabbed a gun and sent the suspects fleeing in an incident in Webster that police said involved two sexual assaults and an abandoned murder plot.
Police in Dickinson ultimately detained two men, but Webster police didn t immediately release the names of the suspects, pending formal charges.
Authorities first learned of the incident at 11:10 a.m. after receiving a report of a man with a gun in the 18400 block of Anne Drive, Webster police Chief Ray Smiley said in a statement.
They were to be murdered
The incident began about 4:30 a.m. when two men entered the home and held three residents hostage. During the home invasion, police accused one man, described only as white, of sexually assaulting two women.
The suspects then tied all three residents and drove them to a field in Alvin, where they were to be murdered, Smiley said. However, the black male suspect was able to talk the white male out of killing the victims.
