FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas The search is on for three home invaders, who terrorized a family while they were having dinner Wednesday night in a Fort Bend County neighborhood.

The armed men went straight to the backdoor and busted out a window to get inside.

It was like the whole street was lined in cop cars and there was crime scene tape all around the house, Amando Queiroga, a neighbor, said.

The suspects barged in on a family while they were eating and began to ransack and rob the home. They even knocked down a 72-year-old woman and stole jewelry another woman was wearing.

The robbers also stole a cell phone that was found ringing in a yard across the street from Joyce Trigger s home.

I m hoping it isn t just any house they can find. I read on a website that it s related to businesses those folks own. That makes me feel like it s not going to be everybody, Trigger said.

The family does own several businesses, but it s not clear if any money was taken from the home in this tight knit community.

The three robbers went running past the Quierogas home, and at one point busted through a fence.

I mean this is real surprising for us cause this is a real quiet neighborhood. You never expect something like that, Samuel Queiroga, a neighbor, said.
