A 7-year-old boy in Fort Bend County, Texas was taken to the hospital after being tortured by home invaders early Monday morning, and now RadarOnline.com has horrifying video of the criminals before they dunked the child into a bathtub in order to get information on valuables inside the home.
Around 3 a.m. on Monday morning authorities were called to an urgent care center where the boy and his father, who suffered blunt force trauma to the head, were being treated for their injuries.
The father told authorities that three masked black suspects broke into his home early Monday morning and hit him in the head before turning their attention to his son. In an attempt to get information on valuables inside the home, the culprits repeatedly dunked the 7-year-old boy in a bathtub, causing fluid to build up in his lungs.
The boy and his father have both since been released from the hospital and are expected to make full recoveries, Fort Bend County Public Information Officer Caitilin Espinosa told Radar.
In an effort to catch the suspects, the sheriff’s department released photos of the suspects from surveillance video inside the home. The footage obtained by Radar shows the suspects as they prepared to enter the home.
According to Officer Espinosa, the department will not release the surveillance videos from inside the home due to the “very graphic” nature of the audio.
The suspects, who are still at large, got away with jewelry, cell phones, and the father’s wallet. One suspect can be seen in photos wearing a vintage Air Jordan hooded sweatshirt, and another wears red sneakers believed to be Jordans.
At this time, the Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of $25,000 for any information leading to the capture of the suspects.
“This is the worst kind of crime against a family,” said Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls in a press conference on Monday. “Three crooks forcing their way into a home in the middle of the night is appalling. To make matters worse, they accosted a 7-year-old child. They’re cowards, to say the least. Someone has information; give Crime Stoppers a call.”
