Two suspects robbed mother, assaulted her in front of kids while out on bond for previous charges
HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - Two burglary suspects are in custody and authorities are still searching for a third. The men are accused of robbing a mom at gunpoint in front of her young kids in northwest Harris County.
Harris County Precinct 4 deputies responded to a home invasion in the 1400 block of Tucumcari Drive at Ponderosa Forest near Spring around 9:30 p.m. When they arrived, they learned three men broke into the home and demanded money.

"I hear somebody that starts like kicking my door, my back door and I'm like, 'oh my God, somebody is breaking in,'" said Marisol, who didn't want to reveal her last name.
Marisol said she grabbed her three young kids and ran upstairs to hide in the attic when she heard an intruder at the door.
"They were screaming, 'Where's the money? Where's the money? Where the money?" Marisol said.
It wasn’t long until Marisol says the three men found her and began beating her repeatedly with a gun in the back of her head in front of her kids, while she begged for mercy.
"I was like please, please, there's no money, please search the house. Take whatever you want. There's nothing here. Just don't kill me and my kids, please," Marisol said.
Fortunately, her neighbor Clyde Lovings was awake when he spotted the men walk into her home with guns and called 911. "I noticed that when they turned the corner they turned their lights off. It was a red flag, signs of trouble," Lovings said.

When the burglars turned away from the family to continue ransacking the home, Marisol said she grabbed her kids and managed to escape. Outside her home, deputies with the Harris County Pct. 4 Constables had set up a perimeter.
One of the department's K9's named "Rambo" Tom Ramsey helped track down two of the men, 23-year-old Roberto Loredo, and 27-year-old Jorge Saker, and bit Laredo multiple times.

Loredo was taken to a local hospital to be treated for injuries from the K-9 bite. He will be booked in Harris County jail when he is released.
Officials also found the vehicle they drove in had cocaine inside.
According to reports, Saker was out on a $100 bond for Driving While Intoxicated and Loredo was out on a $2,500 bond for Burglary of a Habitation.
