November 29, 2014 (San Diego)—A masked man armed with a gun broke into a home on 67th Street in the College area Friday morning, terrorizing a wheelchair-bound woman with cerebral palsy.

CBS news reports that the victim was talking with her caregiver when she heard her electronic door open. The suspect pointed a gun at her, then pushed the gun against her neck and demanded items including her cell phone.  The woman told CBS, “He took off my seat belt and threw me on the floor.”

The suspect forced the caregiver into a back bedroom, but the caregiver was able to escape and run to a neighbor’s house.  A 911 call was placed at 8:23 a.m. and police arrived in force, but the gunman had already fled.

The suspect is described as 32 to 35 years old, 6-feet to 6-feet-3 inches tall, 250-270 pounds, with brown hair and a scruffy beard.  He was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and khaki pants, and he fled in a white vehicle.

The frightened resident asks public help to find the suspect and bring him to justice, so that she can feel safe in her home again.  If you have any information on this crime, please call San Diego Police.
