“Home invasion” last night in Angeleno Heights

The LAPD needs your help in identifying suspects in a home invasion last night in Angelino Heights. The suspects, who were posing as police officers, also attempted to rob the family after knocking on the front door of house located on the 900 block of White Knoll Street.

Thankfully, no one was injured and nothing was taken from the family’s home.

After opening the screen door, “the uniformed suspect threw a clipboard on the floor then grabbed the 55-year-old woman by her throat and threw her to the floor,” said Lt. Paul Vernon, commanding officer of LAPD’s Central Detective Division.  “Her 21-year-old son intervened and the suspect threw him to the ground as well.”

According to the blog post, “The suspects were described as Hispanic men between 30 and 40 years old.  Only one wore a long-sleeve, blue security uniform.  The other wore a black sweatshirt and green pants.  The suspects drove away in a black Infinity or Highlander SUV.”
