February 20, 2011 (Valley Center) Last night at 6:10 p.m., three armed men entered an open door at 27446 S. Canal Road on the San Pasqual Indian Reservation in Valley Center. A woman was waiting at the open door for friends to arrive when the men burst into the home, according to Sergeant Bob Bishop with the Sheriff’s department.
According to the Sheriff’s report, the woman’s husband, heard her shouting, came into the room and confronted the intruders. A fight ensued and the husband was forced to the floor and held at gunpoint.
While the victims were held in the living room by one suspect, the other two suspects ransacked the house, collecting jewelry and prescription drugs. The female victim sustained minor injuries when one of the suspects punched her in the face.
The husband indicated he may have recognized two of the suspects. During the robbery, the victim’s adult son and daughter-in-law who live at the residence were able to escape from the home and call the Sheriff’s Department.
The first suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his mid-twenties, six feet tall with a heavy build. Suspect number two is described as a Hispanic male in his early-twenties, five feet nine inches tall with a medium build. The third suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his early-twenties, five feet nine inches tall with a slight build. The weapon used was a small caliber blue steel colored automatic handgun.
