Pollok homeowner: 'I thought I was fixing to die'


This story contains some strong language.

Angelina county sheriff investigators are still trying to determine the identities of four men who attempted to rob a man in his front yard yesterday morning.

Homeowner Jerry Brock has begun to express his thoughts after the attempted home invasion.

"I thought I was fixing to die," said Brock. "I thought they were going to shoot me and kill me."

Brock had just pulled in his driveway shortly after 10 a.m. on Tuesday. Brock then noticed a car pulling into his yard.

"I thought they were a bill collector," said Brock. "I turned to walk back to their car."

Brock said four black men rushed out of the car and forced him to the ground.

"I was just trying to keep from getting shot," said Brock. I did feel like they were going to shoot me."

The attack was also verbal.

"They were hollering, 'Get up mother f-," said Brock.

Three of the four suspects would eventually lead Brock to his front door.

After not being able to get the door open, one of the suspects fired a shot from a semiautomatic gun through the front window, striking the couch inside where his daughter usually sits.    

"If she was here and came to the door and open it while all this was going on, I'd hate to think what they would have done then," said Brock.

After the single shot, Brock recalled that the three invaders and one driver would take off in a white Mitsubishi sedan.

Brock has chosen to speak out about what happened, for one reason only.

"I do want them caught because I'm afraid that if they don't get caught, they are going to hurt somebody," said Brock.

Angleina County Sheriff Greg Sanches told KTRE that investigators do not believe this is connected to several other home invasions in the area.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the sheriff's office at 936-634-3331.
