Woman ambushed by robbers in her own garage in the Heights
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Neighbors in the Heights are on high alert after a woman was robbed at gunpoint in her own garage. It happened at Waverly near 8th Street two weeks ago.
Police say a woman was organizing her garage when two masked men ambushed her. They ransacked her car, forced her to load her vehicle with items from her own house, then took off in it.
The thieves abandoned the car nearby and set it on fire. We're told the homeowner's association is taking steps to beef up security.
