LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) – Three men are accused of breaking into a woman's home—guns drawn. The violent break-in happened in the 100 block of Hubbard Drive in Longview, Wednesday night.

What started as a burglary call quickly turned into a dangerous situation, once officers heard about the initial crime.

"There were some residents sitting in their apartment in their house and door was kicked in by at least three black males," explained Officer Kristie Brian of the Longview Police Department.

But, it wasn't just a simple burglary, the victim told Police that three men crashed through her door, all wearing hoodies and masks over their faces, and all pointing weapons at her.

For a few moments, the victim was staring down the barrels of semi-automatic pistols.

"[They] stole an undetermined amount of cash from the victim," said Brian.

A patrol officer spotted the suspect's vehicle on Estes Parkway and began to follow. After a short chase, the men bailed.

"A couple of the subjects jumped out of the vehicle and ran," says Brian, "They actually threw the guns and the bag that the marijuana out."

They disappeared into a wooded area, but 24-year-old LeDarvion George was arrested and charged.

"They were wearing black hoodies, and they have some sort of white masks on their face," explained Brian.

George is jailed for evading arrest, possession of marijuana 5-50 pounds, and burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony. He remains jailed on $120,000 bond.

No one was injured in the home invasion.

Longview Police ask anyone with information about the other two men involved, to give them a call.
