Grand Junction Home Invasion-Robbery May Not Be Random Crime
An early morning home invasion and robbery being investigated by the Mesa County Sheriff's Office appears to be planned and not a random crime.
On Tuesday (March 20) at 1:42 a.m. Mesa County Sheriff Deputies responded to a report of a home invasion. The homeowners told deputies two men were able to enter the home through an unlocked window.
The men held the family at the home at gunpoint while demanding money. During the invasion, one member of the family was assaulted by the suspects. The burglars searched the home and at some point, one of the men fired a gun.
Investigators are interviewing those involved as well as others they believe have knowledge of the crime and now believe those involved intentionally targeted the family.
The suspects are described as two African-American males who, at the time of the break-in, were wearing bandannas over their faces and black hooded sweatshirts.
This is an open and ongoing investigation and Mesa County Sheriff's Office Investigators are asking anyone who might have seen or heard something to contact them.
Also, if you have information that could identify and locate the suspects, you are asked to contact the Mesa County Sheriff's Office Witness Tip Line at (970) 244-3526.
Tips can also be submitted anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers of Mesa County at (970) 241-7867.
