HOUSTON -- There’s been a break in the case of a vicious ambush in Sugar Land that began with a phony pizza delivery.

 It happened back on September 24th in the 7400 block of Baldwin crossing.

A 53-year-old woman was tied up and pistol whipped after opening the door to a man posing as a pizza delivery man. Three other men also stormed in behind him.

Police announced Tuesday that they’ve made an arrest. Aaron Reyes, 18, of Houston, is now behind bars on a charge of aggravated assault.

Sugar Land police also identified a second suspect who they are looking for. They believe 23-year-old Maydevis Molina is living in the Houston area.

The identities of the other two suspects remain unknown.

There is still little comfort in the neighborhood rocked by the home invasion.

“My mother is staying with me right now. I tell her, whoever comes by, just don't open the door,” said neighbor Linet Jose.

Neighbors said they’ve been taking a number of added precautions since the incident.

“Even on Halloween night that thought was going on in my head, like OK, unless they're kids and they've got parents behind them open the door. Otherwise don't open the door,” said neighbor Sundy Srinivasan.

The suspects got away with two large TVs, two laptops, jewelry and an undisclosed amount of cash when the crime happened. They also stole the victim’s car, but it was later recovered by authorities.

Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at 281-275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS (8477).
