Upon arrival officers were met by a male victim, 29, who stated he had just been robbed by two males approximately 20 minutes earlier. The victim further stated he was watching television, when he heard a knock at the door. He looked through the peep hole and observed a black male, 5’06”, 150 lbs, who he believed he recognized, so he opened the door. Once the door was open two additional unknown males entered the victim’s residence. Suspect #2 was described as 5’06, 160, brown skinned black male, with curly hair, wearing a navy shirt and blue jeans. Suspect # 3 was described as light skinned black male, 5’09″, 175, wearing a light colored shirt, shorts, and a navy blue hat. The victim reported the suspects demanded his firearm and money from his safe, before duck taping and placing him in the bathroom. The suspects took the victim’s black Walter P99C 9mm firearm, possibly a box of ammunition and an IPhone, and fled in an unknown direction.
