The Glendale Police Department is investigating a home invasion robbery that occurred on June 3, 2016 at approximately 7:10 a.m. in the 2100 block of Maginn Drive in the City of Glendale.
Preliminary investigation reveals, three male Hispanic males wearing reflective yellow vests representing themselves as “water and power” employees, contacted a male victim at his residence in the 2100 block of Maginn Drive. One of the suspects was in possession of a clipboard indicating a signature was required for work in the area. The victim spoke to the suspects through the window and then opened the front door. Upon opening the door, the suspects forced their way into the home, pushing the victimdown on the ground and zip tying his hands and feet. One suspect held the victim at gunpoint while the other two suspects searched the home for valuables. The suspects located cash from the residence and fled the scene driving a black sedan.
An officer checking the area of the 134 freeway located a black Lexus with paper plates occupied by three male Hispanics. As the officer attempted to stop the vehicle at Pacific and Burchett, the vehicle fled. A pursuit was initiated and the suspect vehicle was lost in the area of Zoo Drive. A perimeter was set up at the Gene Autry Museum and officers located two male suspects matching the description attempting to flee on foot. The males were detained and taken into custody in connection with the home invasion robbery.
Evidence relating to the crime at the Maginn Drive residence was located at the scene where the suspects were taken into custody.
The victim sustained minor facial injuries and was treated at the scene by the Glendale Fire Department.
One suspect remains outstanding and described as a male Hispanic with short hair.
The identities of the suspects in custody will not be released at this time due to the ongoing investigation by Glendale detectives.
