Harris County Sheriff's Department announced Thursday they had arrested two men and one juvenile accused of beating a pregnant woman after breaking into her home in northwest Harris County. The woman was tied up with tape and beaten. She was taken to the hospital and an emergency C-section was performed. The baby is currently listed in critical condition.
One of the suspects, Hector Ramirez, 19, is allegedly the father of the infant. He, along with Isias Arellano, 19, and a 16-year-old male whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, are charged with aggravated robbery and are in the Harris County Jail.
All three suspects were caught on Wednesday at the scene of the crime in the 16100 block of Keith Harrow in northwest Harris County.
Happy Friday, everybody. Sigh.
