3 Sought In Valley Center Home-Invasion Robbery

Incident Happened At House On South Canal Road In San Pasqual Indian Reservation

Authorities are searching for three men who robbed a couple at gunpoint inside their Valley Center home.

At 6:10 p.m. on Saturday, three men walked through an open door into the home on South Canal Road in the San Pasqual Indian Reservation, San Diego Sheriff's Sgt. Bob Bishop said.

Bishop said a female resident confronted the suspects first. Her husband ran to the living room to help after he heard his wife yelling.

A fight broke out and the victims were forced to the ground at gunpoint and held down by one of the suspects, while the other two ransacked the home and collected jewelry and prescription drugs, Bishop said.

During the robbery, the woman was punched in the face and at some point, the couple's adult son, along with his wife, escaped from the home and called police.

Bishop said the husband thought he recognized two of the three suspects, who used a small-caliber blue steel-colored semi-automatic handgun during the robbery.

All three were described as Hispanic males in their 20s who drove to the home, Bishop said. A description of the car was not available.

Bishop said one suspect was 6 feet tall with a heavy build, the second suspect was 5 feet-9-inches tall with a medium build and the last was 5-feet-9-inches tall with a thin build.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact detectives at the Valley Center sheriff's station at (760) 751-4400.
