10-year-old held at gunpoint in home invasion
A 10-year-old girl was held at gunpoint during a home invasion robbery in West San Jose on Monday afternoon, a police spokesman said Wednesday.
Officers responded to a report of a home invasion robbery in the 1200 block of Ranchero Way just east of Saratoga Avenue shortly after 1 p.m.
Monday, police Officer Albert Morales said.
Two Hispanic men in their 20s had knocked on an apartment’s front door, which was opened by someone inside, according to Morales.
The suspects entered the home with force while wielding handguns, Morales said.
One of the two men grabbed the girl against her will, put a gun to her head and threatened her, Morales said.
The second suspect ransacked the apartment, then both suspects left with an undisclosed amount of cash and belongings from the home, he said.
The men had entered a waiting dark-colored four-door sedan, where two other suspects were inside, and fled the scene, according to Morales.
No injuries were reported.
The suspects have not been found as of this afternoon, Morales said.
