Suspects flee home invasion, crowbar attack

A Pinole resident was hit in the face with a crowbar during a robbery at his home Friday morning, police said.

At 9:45 a.m. officers went to the 2700 block of Garrity Court because someone called them and said three suspects kicked in the front door of a home and went inside.

According to police, two of the suspects went into the victim’s bedroom and told him to give them money.

They shoved the victim and hit him in the face with a crow bar as they made their demands, police said. The crow bar cut the victim’s face.

The suspects took the victim’s wallet and left the home. A witness described the suspects as three black men in their 20s wearing jeans and dark-colored hooded sweatshirts with the hoods up, according to police.

The witness said that the suspects left the area in a gold 4-door American-made vehicle such as an early 2000s Buick. The vehicle was seen going north on Ponderosa Trail.

Anyone with more information about the robbery is asked to call Pinole police at (510) 724-8950.
