Police are searching for a pair of suspects that robbed and assaulted a man and his mother in their Hercules home on Saturday morning, a Hercules police sergeant said Tuesday. Officers responded to a report of a home invasion in the 100 block of Paradise Drive at 7:14 a.m. after two men forced their way into the home, police said. One of the suspects pistol-whipped a resident, a man in his 20s, as both suspects repeatedly asked, “Where’s the money?” according to police.
The armed suspect went into one of the home’s bedrooms and demanded cash from the resident’s mother, a woman in her 50s, said Hercules police Sgt. Ruben Rodriguez. One of the suspects slapped and choked the woman during the robbery, police said. Both the man and his mother have recovered from minor injuries, Rodriguez said.Police said the suspects made off with $2,000 in cash, $4,500 in jewelry, a flat-screen TV and a small safe. Investigators are following leads but so far do not have any concrete information to track the two suspects, Rodriguez said.
