IRVINE, Calif. (July 1, 2021) – The Irvine Police Department (IPD) is seeking the public’s help in identifying two male suspects involved in a robbery that occurred at a residence on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, June 30, 2021, at approximately 7:49 p.m., IPD officers responded to a report of a residential robbery in the area of Radial and Benchmark. Officers learned a female victim was alone inside the residence and had just finished showering when two suspects forced entry to the home by shattering the rear sliding glass door. The suspects discovered the victim, ordered her to put clothes on, and walked her from room to room demanding she assist them in identifying where money and jewelry were located. After ransacking every room, the suspects placed the victim in a bathroom and barricaded the door with furniture to prevent her escape.
At approximately 7:40 p.m., a male roommate returned home and interrupted the robbery while the suspects were still inside. The roommate ran from the residence and requested a neighbor call 911. Both suspects fled the scene with property from the home.
The victim was not physically harmed during the incident and did not report seeing a weapon.
Suspect #1 is described as a male black, approximately 6 feet tall, wearing a black beanie, black facemask, black zippered jacket, black pants and dark shoes. He appeared to be 25-35 years old.
Suspect #2 is described as a male black, approximately 6 feet tall, wearing a blue beanie, black facemask, black zippered jacket and black shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Gavin Hudson at 949-724-7168 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
