Anyone with information regarding a home invasion robbery Wednesday, Nov. 8 evening at the River Roost Mobile Home Park near Susanville is asked to call the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office at 257-6121.
According to a statement from the LCSO, deputies responded to the park on a report of a robbery with a firearm. Upon arrival at the residence, they discovered a male/female couple that had been victims of the armed, home invasion robbery.
According to the statement, about 10:25 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8 the female occupant of the residence answered a knock at the door of her home. While opening the door, she saw a person dressed in all black clothing and a facemask pointing a handgun at her. The victim tried to shut the door, but the suspect forced the door open, knocking her to the floor.
The suspect demanded money. A second victim entered the room and the suspect pointed the gun at him, again demanding money. The suspect pushed the man towards a bedroom at gunpoint and ordered him to get his wallet.
The suspect is described as a man by the tone of his voice, skinny and tall, carrying a pistol that resembles a Glock brand.
The suspect is also described as having red color on a hat or hood he was wearing. It is possible the suspect will be in possession of a retired California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation badge that was inside one of the victims’ wallets.
