A man armed with a rifle entered a home in Chualar Tuesday morning and demanded money from the residents for his daughter, according to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office. The suspect had approached the victims last week at their home in the 1000 block of Chualar River Road in a blue van trying to sell fruit, but the victims said no, sheriff’s officials said.
The suspect returned Tuesday at 11:15 a.m., again asking a victim to buy fruit, but was again turned down. The suspect then appeared to have left but officials say he drove to the rear of the house. The suspect then put a bandana around his face and armed himself with a rifle. He entered the back door and demanded money for his sick daughter from the victims in the home.
He then left the house in his van with an undisclosed amount of cash, officials said. Deputies said there were no injuries reported during the robbery. The suspect is described as a man between 18 to 25 years old who weighs between 180 to 200 pounds and is roughly 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall. He has brown eyes and his car was a white van with a sliding side door.
