HOUSTON A pregnant woman said two men barged into her southwest Houston home Friday and held her at gunpoint.
It was horrible. I really thought I was going to die. I really thought it was going to die, said the victim, who is 8-months pregnant.
It was just after 11 a.m. when she heard the knock on her door in the 4300 block of Breakwood.
I thought I recognized him, I thought he was a neighbor so I did open the door, she said.
That s when she said the man pushed his way in and pulled out a gun, demanding the family s safe. She told him there isn t one.
We kind of wrestled at the entrance and we kind of wrestled in the living room, she said.
It all happened as her 18-month-old son was just feet away.
This is why I told him, please don t hurt me. Don t hurt me. Take what you want, just don t hurt me, she said.
She said the gunman, then another, began searching her house.
Then she made a run for it.
I took my child and run through the side door and called 911 from the neighbor s house and they were still in the house, she said.
But she said the robbers left with nothing.
Police found a pick-up truck, the suspected getaway vehicle, about a mile and half away on West Belfort. The gunmen were gone.
The victim has advice for others.
I m telling you, please be careful when you open the door, she said. Even if you think you know the person, like I thought I did, just be careful. Be careful.
