PALMDALE – A family in Palmdale was tied up and terrorized Monday by three men who finally left after stealing a gun and some cash, a sheriff’s lieutenant said.
The robbery took place about 1:30 p.m. Monday, July 16, at a home in the 38700 block of Erika Lane, sheriff’s Lt. Jacqueline Sanchez.
Sanchez said she didn’t know the number of family members who were home or if any of the family members were injured during the robbery. She also said she didn’t know how much money was stolen.
A videographer at the scene said the victims were owners of a liquor store and that the robbers got away with around $100,000.
The videographer also said the suspects were seen driving away in a Chevrolet Equinox.
This was the second home invasion in this neighborhood in 15 days. The first one occurred July 2. In that case the victims were owners of a Thai restaurant.
Sanchez said detectives are investigating any links between the two home invasion robberies.
