Home Invasion in North Highlands

Four children escaped injury during a home invasion in North Highlands earlier today.

Just after 12:30 p.m. yesterday, Sacramento Sheriff’s deputies responded to a residence in the 3700 block of Bolivar Avenue, after a twelve year-old girl called to say that two suspects had broken into her home. One of the suspects pointed a gun at the children, before fleeing the residence on foot.

Shortly before this incident, one of the suspects, described as a Hispanic male adult, and a dark-skinned female adult knocked on the front door of the home. The four children inside neglected to answer the door, or make it known that they were inside. A few moments later, the children discovered that the Hispanic male adult and a black male adult had entered the home through the garage, and were ransacking one of the bedrooms.

The children, ranging from seven to twelve years of age, confronted the suspects and yelled at them to leave. The children then ran and sequestered themselves in other bedrooms within the home. One of the suspects reportedly pointed a firearm at one of the children, before forcing open the door of another bedroom where other children were hiding. At that point, one of the children obtained a phone and called for help. The suspects ran from the residence and fled in opposite directions.

The children ran to the home of a neighbor, who immediately called for assistance. Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene and established a perimeter, in an attempt to locate the suspects. A search of the neighborhood was conducted with negative results. This incident remains under investigation at this time. Anyone having information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Department at (916) 874-5115.
