Four victims were injured in two home invasion robberies in Livermore within an hour of each other on Monday night, police said. In the first incident, at about 9:16 p.m. Monday in the 1500 block of Heather Lane, a lone victim confronted two suspects who had entered his home. The suspects hit the man with an unidentified object, police said.
The man suffered moderate injuries and was taken to ValleyCare Medical Center in Livermore. Electronic equipment was stolen from the house. Police believe the intended target of the robbery was a neighbor’s home. The second incident involved two suspects who forced a woman inside her apartment from the front porch area at around 9:51 p.m. in the 900 block of Catalina Drive, according to police.
Once inside, the suspects threatened and hit the woman and her boyfriend. The suspects held the victims against their will and ransacked their apartment. A neighbor came to see what was causing the commotion and the suspects then hit the neighbor with a weapon, police said. All three victims suffered minor to moderate injuries.
The suspects fled in a green full-sized sedan after stealing several items from the apartment, according to police. Livermore police said they do not know if the robberies are related, but said the incidents do not appear to be random and that the suspects targeted the residences with the intent to steal narcotics.
One of the suspects in the first incident is described as a black man standing about 5 feet 8 inches tall with an average build and wearing black clothing and a stalking cap. The second suspect is only described as wearing dark clothing. The two suspects from the robbery on Catalina Drive are described as a black man with a trimmed goatee who was wearing dark clothing and a second East Indian or light-skinned black man wearing dark clothing and a ski mask.
