A man and his alleged female accomplice were arrested last week in connection with a July armed robbery of residents at a home in south San Jose, a police spokeswoman said. Christopher Nguyen and Tiffany Nguyen, both 19 and from San Jose, were booked into Santa Clara County Main Jail on suspicion of robbery, false imprisonment, conspiracy to commit robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a robbery, according to San Jose police Sgt. Heather Randol.
San Jose police’s MERGE unit apprehended the pair at 3:41 p.m. Thursday following an investigation into a July 30 home invasion robbery in the 7000 block of Anjou Creek Court, about a block south of Almaden Expressway, police said. According to police, Christopher Nguyen broke a glass window and forced his way into the house while possessing two firearms.
A person sleeping inside the home awoke to the sound of the glass breaking, went to investigate and came face-to-face with the intruder, police said. Officers said Christopher Nguyen then allegedly bound the victim with zip ties and ransacked the home while searching for valuables to steal before leaving the scene.
The Police Department’s robbery unit conducted an investigation and determined that Tiffany Nguyen had served as the lookout for her cohort during the robbery, Randol said.
Anyone with further information about the case is urged to contact the robbery unit at (408) 277-4166.
