Home Invasions Taken To New Level
Seems like home invasions used to be done by a couple guys. Now it's 4-6 or more. How do you defend against that?
Three Home Invasions
Two home invasion robberies took place in Selma and Atwater on Tuesday and a third has been reported on Wednesday in Fresno.
The attack in Fresno took place on West Chandler near Marks and Madison in the Southwest part of the city.
Fresno Police say four armed suspects confronted a man as he was leaving his home. They forced him back inside and tied him up, along with a woman and a 13-year-old boy. Two other children were also inside but were left sleeping.
The suspects got away with money and computers.
In Selma, Fresno County Sheriff’s Deputies are searching for suspects in a separate home invasion robbery where six masked men with guns broke into a home on McCall Avenue Tuesday afternoon.
The suspects held a grandmother and her 7-year-old grandson while they stole jewelry and an SUV.
The victims were not injured and the SUV was ditched a few blocks from the crime scene.
Deputies are still looking for the six thieves last seen in a red minivan and a white Jeep Cherokee with Arizona plates.
And in the North Valley, a young father and his 10-month-old daughter are safe after a frightening home invasion in Merced County.
It happened on Tuesday in South Atwater. The 23-year-old victim came home with his daughter to find several armed men inside his house.
They were held hostage while the suspects ransacked the home and stole the victim's car. The stolen vehicle was found a few blocks away.
