When the 31-year-old male victim opened the door, two masked individuals holding guns forced their way into the apartment.
One of the suspects struck the man in the head with the gun. The suspects woke up the man’s sleeping wife, who is pregnant. One of the suspects placed the gun in the female victim’s mouth and threatened to kill her while demanding money. There was also a small child present at the apartment during the home invasion. Both adult victims and the child were placed in a rear bedroom while the suspects ransacked the apartment.
The suspects took the victims’ cell phones and keys, and fled the scene on foot. The man was not seriously injured, and the child was unharmed. The woman was taken to the hospital for medical treatment as a precaution, due to her pregnancy.
