Suspects at large after two Burbank home invasions

leave a comment »

A pair of recent home invasion-style robberies have police searching for two black men who entered residences and threatened to kill the occupants before making off with their valuables.

The duo on Oct. 21 kicked in the front door of a home in the 200 block of Santa Anita Avenue where they were confronted by a 14-year-old girl, police said. The suspects threatened to kill the girl before she was able to lock herself in the bathroom, Burbank Police Sgt. Robert Quesada said.

Police arrived on the scene but were unable to locate the suspects, who are described as in their 20s, wearing red hooded sweatshirts, blue jeans and driving a dark-colored vehicle.

The invasion came one day after two black men fitting similar descriptions entered a home in the 800 block of East Olive Avenue and ordered the occupant to the floor, police said.

They ransacked the residence and took documents from a safe before fleeing the area. Quesada said the victim was unharmed and didn’t know who the suspects were.
