Intruder creeps through toddler's room, hovers over crib

KATY - by Drew Karedes/KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

 

A family is grateful that their toddler was not hurt after a creepy break-in that happened while everyone was sound asleep.

 

It happened back on April 5 around 5 a.m. in the 18200 block of Flint Hill Drive in Katy.

 

The burglar slipped into the family's home through an unlocked first-story window.

 

He appeared to be aware that surveillance cameras were recording his every move but carried on anyway.

 

The footage shows him going from room to room. For five minutes, the stranger is seen walking in and out of the bedroom of a 2-year-old boy.

 

At one point, the intruder hovers over the boy's crib and points a flashlight toward the sleeping child.

 

"I was infuriated when I saw him walking back and forth in my baby's room. My stomach was turning," explained father Thinh Le. "He's my world. I love him."

 

Thinh Le and the child's mother were in their bedroom on the first floor. They slept through everything.

 

The parents are still baffled as to why the criminal was drawn to the child's room upstairs.

 

"My boy thought it was me so he went back to sleep. If he made noise or cried and I went upstairs, something else could happen," said Le.

 

The teenage burglar eventually left and burglarized another home in the Brenwood Park subdivision.

 

He also got into that home through an unlocked window.

 

"I was sleeping. My dog started barking at the top of the stairs," said Crystal Cox. "My boyfriend thought his bark sounded different so he flipped the light on."

 

Cox's boyfriend then shined a laser pointer toward downstairs. The intruder quickly escaped but abandoned some stolen belongings on Cox's front lawn.

 

"My purse, my sister's purse, my laptop bag and our neighbor's laptop bag," said Cox.

 

That second laptop bag belonged to Thinh Le. The suspect also stole $60 from his wallet.

 

His laptop was inside and so was his contact information. That's how Cox got in touch with Le, and the two began piecing everything together.

 

Cox was floored when she saw Leas surveillance video.

 

"He had no problem being in someone's house, knowing that they were home asleep. That takes a lot of nerve," added Cox.

 

Neighbors suspect this same intruder is responsible for a string of other burglaries in the community.

 

The suspect is described as a male, 16 to 18 years old. He was wearing a New Era baseball cap with a San Antonio Spurs logo on the brim. He also has a tattoo behind his right ear, possibly of Asian characters.

 

If you recognize him or have any information, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS.

14-year-old found safe in South Texas

MAGNOLIA, Texas - by KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

 

Family members say 14-year-old Elizabeth Rex, the Magnolia girl who went missing on Monday, has been found safe in South Texas.

 

An Amber Alert was issued for the girl on Tuesday.

 

Check back for updates to this developing story.

 

The 14-year old is known as "Lizzy" in Magnolia's Victoria Village neighborhood where she is homeschooled.

 

Her parents say she has a touch of Down Syndrome, autism and something called Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD).

 

Her family said they were sure she was taken by 51-year-old Randy Johnson. He worked with Patrick Rex and knew another family friend too

 

Lizzy's family took him in after learning he was battling colon cancer and had nowhere to go.

 

They kicked him out after he got a little too friendly with Lizzy.

 

"I mean we were literally listening to every conversation and it was in code," said Black. "So once we decided what the codes were, it was like you have to go you can't be here."

 

On Monday, the girl walked outside and simply vanished.

 

Her parents knew nothing until they received a call from Johnson taunting them.

 

"He calls us and says, "Y'all will never see Lizzy again and things like that cuz where we're going you can't get there," said Rex. "Not even ten minutes later he calls back and goes, "La-la-la-la.a"

Mother of missing teen fears suspected kidnapper will never bring her home

MAGNOLIA - by Tiffany Craig/KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

 

An Amber Alert has been sent out and handwritten signs are up in the neighborhood, but no one has seen Elizabeth Rex since Monday.

 

Her heartbroken dad, Patrick Rex, says she's a daddy's girl.

 

"I love her so much," said Rex. "She's my number one"

 

The 14-year old is known as "Lizzy" in Magnolia's Victoria Village neighborhood where she is homeschooled.

 

Her parents say she has a touch of Down Syndrome, autism and something called Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD).

 

"What that means is even though she is at the age of 14, she's actually mind-wise that of a 5 to 6 year old child," said Jennifer Black, Lizzy's mother.

 

Her family is sure she was taken by 51-year-old Randy Johnson. He worked with Patrick Rex and knew another family friend too.

 

Lizzy's family took him in after learning he was battling colon cancer and had nowhere to go.

 

They kicked him out after he got a little too friendly with Lizzy.

 

"I mean we were literally listening to every conversation and it was in code," said Black. "So once we decided what the codes were, it was like you have to go you can't be here."

Her parents knew nothing until they received a call from Johnson taunting them.

 

"He calls us and says, "Y'all will never see Lizzy again and things like that cuz where we're going you can't get there," said Rex. "Not even ten minutes later he calls back and goes, "La-la-la-la.a"

 

Johnson doesn't have a car but her dad is sure they got a ride and are headed south to his hometown of Harlingen.

 

Montgomery County detectives have asked her family to stay put and not to go after her, but they fear she will be gone forever.

 

"Even though I pray and I pray and I pray that he's gonna bring her home, but at this point in time I don't think so," Said her mom.

 

Elizabeth "Lizzy" Rex is 5'1", 113 lbs, and has brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing black pants, a gray tank top, a red jacket, gray tennis shoes. Johnson is 5'6", 135 lbs, and has brown hair and hazel eyes. He was last heard from in Magnolia, Texas.

 

Law enforcement officials believe Lizzy is in immediate danger. If you have any information regarding this abduction, call the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office at (936) 760-5876.
