FRESNO, Texas -- Fort Bend County Deputies are warning residents about a violent home invasion.

It happened around 8 p.m. Saturday in the 4000 block of Aerial Brook Trail in Fresno.

Two HVAC techs were fixing an air conditioner. They had just finished the job and getting ready to leave when they said they were held at gun point and forced back into the customer’s home.

Once they were inside, the suspects held the repairmen and two homeowners at gun point. The homeowners were tied up and robbed.

“I’m going to get some gas, I went to leave and I saw the police officers,” said Kitty Alexander, the victim’s neighbor.

“They pulled out guns and held them to the people’s heads and demanded money and keys to cars and all that,” said DeShawn, another neighbor.

No serious injuries were reported, but the suspects got away.

Neighbors said the middle-aged couple has been living at the house for seven years and they tend to keep to themselves.

Now residents living in the Teal Run sub division are nervous.

The suspects were seen on surveillance video driving a white, early 1990’s white Cadillac sedan.

The suspects are described as black males, late teens to early twenties.  Two of the suspects were reported to have been wearing gold pants.

Fort Bend Detectives are requesting the community’s assistance with identifying information on any of the three suspects.  Anyone with information is asked to please contact Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office at (281) 341-4665 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers, Inc. at (281) 342-TIPS (8477) or text plus the tip to CRIMES (274637). Tips can also be submitted online at www.fortbend-tx-crimestoppers.org.
