On May 29, 2012 at approximately 4:10 PM a black newer model SUV was parked in the 14400 block of N.E. 14 Place where two men and three women (both black and white races) exited the vehicle and walked into the cul-de-sac. A nearby resident became suspicious of the activity and confronted a white female asking what they were doing in the neighborhood. The female replied back in a rude manner and three of the five proceeded to a nearby home.
A black male and the white female approached the front door of a home and banged on the door covering the peep hole. The male victim inside the home asked who was at the door and the female responded asking him to open the door. The male partially opened the door and was sprayed with pepper spray. The victim screamed in pain which alerted the home owner’s dog. The black male suspect attempted to force the door open and block the door from being closed but became frightened when the barking dog charged the door. The victim was able to close and lock the door.
The neighbor called 9-1-1. All suspects fled the scene in the black SUV.
The victim and witnesses were able to describe three of the suspects:
- White female with red hair, 19-24, 5’7”, 140 to 150 Lbs. wearing multi-colored sweatshirt with hoodie.
- Black male, mid 20s, 5'10", 170 Lbs., wearing black sweatshirt with hoodie.
- White male with light blonde hair, unknown age, 5'7", 130 to 140 Lbs., wearing green long-sleeved T-shirt and gray cotton shorts to the knees.
Crime Prevention Tips:
1. Do not open your door to unknown person(s).
2. Always verbally answer to let the person know that someone is home
3. Teach your children not to open the door but to verbally answer when they are by themselves
4. Phone 9-1-1 if the contact is suspicious.
