A woman — barefoot and wearing what could be handcuffs –repeatedly rang doorbells at a number of Texas homes before vanishing into the night.
Now local police in Montagomery Country are trying to identify her and have released surveillance footage of her approaching at home. The grainy video, captured around 3:20 a.m. on Friday, shows a woman walking up to a house and ringing the doorball. She’s wearing a T-shirt, and appears to have some sort of shackle hanging from her right wrist.
‘We were dead asleep in our beds. My husband was woken up by doorbell ring. It rang probably 20 to 30 times,’ one resident, who did not want to be named, told CNN. He walked outside, no one was in sight. It’s like she disappeared in thin air.
KPRC reported that the same woman apparently visited at least five houses in the Sunrise Ranch neighborhood.
Suspicious, of the Montgomery County Sherif’s office, said in a statement that police are investigating the suspicious incident.
Authorities have reviewed various images and have canvassed the neighborhood for evidence. Officer have inspected houses and conducted interviews with people who live and work in the area.
Spencer said the woman could be a crime victim who was seeking help, but warned that she also could be involved in some kind of scheme, so he urged residents to exercise caution according to KPRC.
