New Years Day interrupted

At approximately 9:30 a.m., a white female in her mid to late-30's entered the private residence of a family in the Fawnlake subdivision in north Harris County. According to the homeowner, the woman entered through the back door, pulling two young boys around the ages of 6 and 7 by the hand. Both boys were cold and visibly upset.

"She would not respond to our questions of who she was, what she was doing in our home, or if they needed help," say the witnesses, who prefer to remain unnamed.

Fleeing in the family vehicle

The woman proceeded to walk out of the home through the front door and down the sidewalk with her children, still ignoring the persistent questions of the homeowners, who at this point had phoned 9-1-1.

The husband followed her down the street while the wife communicated with Katy Police Department.

Stopped by Katy Police

The woman walked about four houses down, and then got into her car, which was parked on the street. She then drove to the back of the subdivision, eventually circling around to the entrance where she was met by three Katy Police vehicles.

Within minutes, Katy EMS and Katy Fire Department were on the scene to evaluate the woman and her children for trauma or injury.

It is still unknown what motive the woman had for entering a strangers home with her two children.
