MCKINLEYVILLE – Four masked men broke into an occupied house in McKinleyville early Friday morning, Aug. 12, demanded money and stole credit cards and phones.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 2700 block of Bolier Avenue at 6:50 a.m., where a 37-year-old victim told them about the armed home-invasion robbery.
The victim said that he and his wife were sleeping in their bedroom when they heard a loud noise. The man went to investigate and found four males holding weapons in his living room. They were all wearing dark clothing and black and red bandannas. The victim said that all the suspects seemed to be white male adults.
One of the suspects ordered the victim to the ground at gunpoint. The suspects then took the victim’s credit cards and cellular telephone. The suspects demanded drugs, but the victim said he didn’t have any.
The suspects then fled the house. Deputies searched the area but didn’t find them.
