LANCASTER – A 53-year-old Lancaster resident shot at two masked thieves who kicked in his front door and forced their way into his master bedroom Saturday night, authorities said. The suspects were not hit by the gunfire, and they appear to be the same suspects who committed an earlier home invasion robbery, also in Lancaster, according to a press release by the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station. Read it below:
Deputies from the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station are investigating a Home Invasion Robbery that occurred in the 5700 block of Spice Street, Lancaster.
At about 11:25 p.m. two armed suspects kicked in the front door of the location and forced their way into the master bedroom of the residence. The victim was able to retrieve his firearm and fire two rounds at the suspects causing them to flee. However, it appears neither of the suspects was struck by gunfire.
The suspects fled the location in an unknown direction. Deputies searched the neighborhood but did not locate the suspects.
The suspects are described as two African American males, both wearing white ski masks. The suspects in this incident appear to be the same suspects who committed an earlier home invasion robbery in the 3600 block of West Avenue K-15, Lancaster.
It does not appear that the suspects obtained any property.
Anyone with information on either of these incidents is urged to contact Robbery/Assault Detective Sergeant Eric Roelofson of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station at 661-948-8466. To remain anonymous, contract LA Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit http://lacrimestoppers.org.
