HOUSTON (FOX 26) - In a statement released on Wednesday evening, Texas state Senator Borris L. Miles confirmed that his home was burglarized by "two armed assailants." One of his elderly relatives arrived at the home during the burglary and was threatened with a gun for a few minutes.
The two burglars fired their weapons and ran away from the home.
Law enforcement officers arrived and determined that no one was injured and no other relatives were home when the burglary was reported.
“I am incredibly thankful that my family is safe tonight. I want to thank HPD and Precinct 7 Constables for responding quickly to ensure my family and home were safe. It has been over a month since Hurricane Harvey and unfortunately, many feel that crime has been on the rise in our community. I am committed to continuing to fight to ensure our neighborhoods are kept safe, especially now when many families are still recovering from this disaster.”
