On August 22nd at approximately 5:06 p.m. officers responded to a 911 call of a home invasion robbery that occurred in the 4700 block of Lake Washington Boulevard South. Preliminary investigation indicates that three male suspects were casing the victim’s house for a possible burglary. The victim, a female in her 60′s, arrived at her house at approximately 4:45 p.m. and was pulling her car into the garage. Unknown to her, the suspects followed the victim into her garage as she pulled in and confronted her at gunpoint.
The suspects took jewelry and the victim’s car keys and fled the scene in a maroon 4-door American-made sedan. The suspects were last seen southbound on Lake Washington Boulevard South and remain at large.
The victim was not injured during the course of the robbery.
Suspect #1 is described as a black male in his 20’s wearing a white shirt, a tie and dark slacks. Suspects #2 and #3 are described as black males in their 20′s wearing dark clothing and hoodies.
Detectives believe the first suspect was well dressed as a possible ruse to gain entry into homes for purposes of casing them out.
Robbery detectives responded to the scene and continue to actively investigate.
