Three men with handguns are sought by police after they entered a house on Sherman Island Road on February 25, assaulting a pair of men inside and making off with about $1,420 worth of electronics.
According to a police report, the crime was reported at 10:18 p.m. from the Southport house.
Three suspects, each carrying a handgun, “physically assaulted the two victims inside, and stole several items. All suspects brandished handguns at both victims, and physically assaulted both victims with their handguns.”
Lieutenant Tod Sockman of the West Sacramento Police Department elaborated for the News-Ledger:
“Three (suspects) wearing jackets and gloves broke into an attached garage, and then the house, while the occupant and his roommate were home,” said Sockman. “They were looking for marijuana — they kept repeating over and over, ‘Where’s the weed? Where’s the weed?’”
Apparently, they were at the wrong house.
“There was no weed,” said Sockman.
The victims were a pair of men age 50 and 52, according to the report. One suffered a black eye and reports he may have been hit on the back of the head with a handgun.
Taken in the robbery were a $600 iPhone, a $250 car stereo and a $550 laptop computer.
There were no detailed descriptions of the suspects, and no escape car was seen.
