Richmond police are searching for four people allegedly involved in a home invasion robbery in the city early this morning, Lt. Mark Gagan said. A man was returning from work at about 2:20 a.m. and opened the door to his home in the 200 block of South 22nd Street when he was confronted by four armed suspects already inside the home, Gagan said. The suspects had already detained his wife, two adult children and a houseguest, and detained the man before ransacking the house, robbing the victims of jewelry and other valuables in the home, according to Gagan. One of the suspects also took a victim’s ATM card and went to a nearby ATM machine to withdraw money, Gagan said. The victims suffered minor injuries in the incident, and were also shaken by “how terrifying it would be to have something like this occur,” Gagan said. The suspects are described as three men and a woman armed with guns, according to Gagan, who said detectives are working with the victims to get more detailed descriptions of the suspects and are considering having forensic sketches done.
