Two Fieldbrook residents robbed, three suspects still at large.
Fieldbrook - Three men held two Fieldbrook residents at gunpoint before escaping with the contents of a safe.
Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 400 block of Evans Road for an alleged home invasion robbery. A 55-year-old man and his 35-year-old son say three men in hooded sweatshirts entered their home through an unlocked sliding door. They proceeded to hold a gun on the father, tied up the son and demanded marijuana. When they told the suspects they had none, the father was forced to open a safe where $3,000 and a coin collection were taken along with their keys and wallets. Law enforcement is looking for the three suspects.
They are described as:
#1 heavy set white male adult, mid 30s, approximately 6’ 2” tall, approximately 250 lbs, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and gloves.
#2 Hispanic, late 20’s, with a moustache and goatee, 5’ 6” tall, 140 lbs, wearing a dark gray hooded sweatshirt, armed with a semi-auto black handgun.
#3 white male, late 20’s, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, 140 lbs, armed with a semi-auto black handgun.
