Robbery, 600 blk of Figueroa Dr, Altadena #ALDLASD Altadena Station

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD) Altadena Station
is currently investigating an Attempted Home Invasion Robbery in the city
of Altadena.

On August 28, 2014, at approximately 10:40 p.m., Altadena Station
received a call of a burglary occurring at the 600 block of Figueroa
Drive, Altadena.

When deputies arrived, the victim reported that two male Black
adults knocked on her door and asked
for “Chris.”  She told them there was no one by
the name of “Chris” living there and attempted to close the door. 
As the victim started to close the door, the two male Black suspects,
forced their way inside the residence.  One suspect was wearing a
plastic mask and carrying a handgun.

As the suspects entered the residence, the victim and her family members
hid in various areas of the home. The victim immediately called
Altadena Sheriff’s Station.

It is unknown at this time what items were taken from the residence
prior to the suspects fleeing in an unknown direction. The two suspects
are still outstanding.   

Both Suspects are described as male Black adults in their 20's.

There is no further information at this time.
