Man orders armed, would-be robbers from his home
Authorities are searching for two men suspected of trying to rob a couple and their daughter at gunpoint at a home in Fort Bend County on Monday night, officials said.
The attempted robbery occurred at a home in the 4800 block of Knights Branch in the New Territory subdivision about 10 p.m., according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's office.
Deputies said when the daughter of the couple answered a knock at the front door, she saw a man who pulled a handgun on her and demanded money. She screamed, ran into another room in the back of the house and told her father what was happening.
Her father walked to the front door and saw two men standing inside the house. He ordered them out and then called the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office.
The two men left.
