Help Palmdale Detectives catch home invasion suspects

PALMDALE – Palmdale Detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying and stopping the suspects involved in a weekend home invasion. Detectives say on Saturday, four suspects kicked open the door to an East Palmdale apartment, bound the family with duct tape, and ransacked the apartment for money.

Detectives have identified several similarities between Saturday’s home invasion and another robbery that took place, two days prior, also in East Palmdale.

The following is the news release from the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station:

On Saturday, Jan. 21, Palmdale Station was called to the 38300 Block of 30th Street East to investigate a Home Invasion Robbery that just occurred. The victim and their family were asleep in the apartment when four suspects kicked open the door and confronted them in their bedroom.

The suspect bound their hands with duct tape while demanding the location of the money inside of the apartment. One suspect assaulted the victim with what detectives believe to be a bat, in an attempt to make the victim compliant.

All four suspects ransacked the apartment while continuing to demand for the victim to tell them where the money was located. The four suspects left the victim and their family bound in the master bedroom as they fled the apartment in an unknown direction.

The victims were able to break free from their restraints before dialing 911.

This Robbery is the second in the past week with the first Robbery occurring on January 19 near the 1100 Block of East Avenue R. While detectives have identified several similarities in the two incidents, they have not officially linked them.

Both cases described the suspects as Black males in their late 20’s. They are all described as being around 6’00” and weighing 200lbs. In both incidents the suspects dressed in dark clothing with masks covering their faces.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspects is asked to contact Detective Hoyt at 661-272-2473. Information can be reported anonymously by contacting “Crime Stoppers” at 800-222-TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or using the website

    Hey Ace, with that name can I assume your a thug like the fools who did this crime. It wasn’t a dope house and it was just a young family asleep who didn’t answer the door. It was kicked in at 3am. A family consisting of a former military man and his wife and 7 month old son. He works for the government and she’s a stay at home mom. You’re about as informed as these cowards that did this crime. But I guess every house in palmdale is a crack house and they should all barricade themselves behind steel doors. We should build a fence around the city and call prisondale. I’m just glad that I don’t “ass”ume as you do.

    The sheriff were call at East Palmdale apartment 38300 Block of 30th Street East to address that points to The Fountains Apartments bad place, 15 surveillance cameras and a lots of stuff going on there. The management are aware of the bad apples in the apartments most of them in probation and drug addicts.

    Oh no! There are criminals out there. So don’t ever question the sheriffs! Especially if they kill an unarmed man.
    That’s your argument?
    What exactly do they think they’ll be dealing with. Did they take their jobs thinking their days would be filled with helping old ladies cross streets?

      Yes, and La Raza, LULAC, ACLU etc. etc. will be arguing that these poor downtrodden minorities are adversely affected by laws against this type of mayhem and therefore are inherently racist and must not be enforced. I grew up in AV, left in 1990 and cannot believe how the quality of life has been destroyed for its law abiding residents of ALL RACES. My advice is to leave that hellhole to the cockroach’s that now infest it and let them finish destroying it.
