Police in Texas are investigating after a barely clothed woman, who appears to have broken restraints around her wrist, was seen ringing a doorbell in the early hours before disappearing.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is investigating the "suspicious incident" after surveillance footage taken from a house in Sunrise Ranch area showed the barefoot woman dressed only in a T-shirt approaching to ring the doorbell at around 03:20 a.m. on August 24.

The clip shows what appears to be broken shackles dangling from her wrists. The resident inside the property told police that the woman had vanished by the time she answered.

A local resident, who did not wish to be identified, told ABC News the woman had rang other doorbells in the area but vanished before any of them came to the door.

Another resident, who didn't want to be identified, told Click 2 Houston: "We were dead asleep in our beds. My husband was woken up by doorbell ring. It rang probably 20 to 30 times. [My husband] walked outside; no one was in sight. It's like she disappeared in thin air."

Neighbor Branson Golson told KTRK, "I've got a 9-year-old daughter at home. It worries me what's going on in the neighborhood."
