Two females who were babysitting two children at an apartment, located at 5757 Wooldridge Road, were tied up by three suspects, and held against their will for a short time.
Neighbors called Corpus Christi Police after the two females escaped out a back window of the apartment and were going door to door asking for help. When Officers arrived they found the 23 year old and 17 year old girls standing outside a neighbor’s apartment. Neither of the females were injured.
The girls told Officers that they were babysitting inside an apartment when the older female answered a knock on the door. The man at the door, asked to speak to a man that lived at the apartment, but he was told that the male was not home at the time and she closed the door.
About ten minutes later the same man returned and knocked at the door again. When the older female opened the door the man grabbed her by the throat and forced his way into the apartment followed by two black males wearing ski mask. All three males pulled out handguns and ordered the females to sit in a back bedroom. The females then had their wrist tied together by the suspects.
After several minutes of ransacking the apartment, the three males left with property from the home and each of the females cellphones.
The younger female was able to get free of her restraints and fearing that the males were still in the apartment, she was able to get out of a bedroom window and both fled to a neighbor’s apartment.
The suspect, who knocked on the door, was described as a Hispanic male in his late twenties, about 5’9”tall and weighing between 150 and 170 pounds. The other two suspects were both black males, in their late twenties, between 6’0” to 6’2” tall and both weighing between 150 to 180 pounds. One of the black males was wearing a ski mask with a skull on it.
The two boys, ages 4 and 5, that the females were babysitting, slept through the entire incident and were not injured.
Officers have not made an arrest, or identified the three suspects involved in this crime and continue to investigate this case.
