HOUSTON (WJBK) -- A robber seen on surveillance video lurking over a sleeping baby's crib has been arrested.

Video cameras show Gomez walking through the victims' home and staring at their toddler in his crib while the family slept. The baby was not harmed.

The video was seen by thousands of people online and made headlines across the country.
