The San Diego Police Department released photos on Thursday of two suspects wanted in connection with a home invasion that happened in Bay Ho on May 30.
The men are accused of entering a computer repairman’s home last week on the 4000 block of Raffee Drive, tying him up and robbing him at gunpoint.
Since the 67-year-old victim runs a computer repair and sales business out of his home, investigators said one of the suspects acted as though he was a previous customer and asked the victim several questions about computers before robbing him.
After a few minutes of conversation, investigators said the suspect produced a large handgun from a backpack and pointed it at the victim.
The two suspects then proceeded to tie up the victim and steal several computers from the home. They also stole the man’s wallet and car, police said.
The stolen car was recovered by police in a nearby neighborhood the following morning.
According to investigators, the suspects are described as two white males in their late 20s. One of the suspects has a full reddish-blonde goatee and tattoos on his neck and both arms. He wore a black T-shirt and baggy black shorts past his knees during the home invasion robbery. The other suspect is clean shaven and was wearing a dark blue jacket and gray pants.
The entire home invasion robbery was captured on surveillance video because the victim had special cameras installed around his home.
The victim experienced another much more violent home invasion back in November 2011 when two men wearing masks broke into his home and beat him and his teenage son with aluminum baseball bats.
Bay Ho neighbors told NBC 7 San Diego the victim had barely finished his rehabilitation stemming from that first home invasion and was starting to mentally recover when the second robbery took place on May 30. The surveillance cameras were installed after that first home invasion.
Anyone with information regarding this latest Raffee Dr. home invasion robbery is urged to contact the San Diego Police Department’s Robbery Unit at (619) 531-2299 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
