Victim Says 4 Armed Robbery Suspects Threatened to Kill Him
The Lubbock police Department is investigating an armed robbery carried out on Friday, April 2. According to a police report, a victim of the robbery called police to a residence in the 5400 block of Harvard Street just after 3 a.m.
The victim reportedly told officers at the scene that they became aware of the robbery after being awoken by a loud sound coming from the living room.
The victim tells police that's when he came upon 4 individuals inside his living room. He described them as each wearing a dark hoodie, gloves, and white masks. He also told police they were each armed with a handgun.
Police say the robbery victim claims to have been held at gunpoint while the group ransacked the place, taking various items, including a television. During the event, the victim says his life was threatened multiple times.
Once they were finished, the victim says the suspect holding him at gunpoint was told by other members of the group to "just kill him", at which point the victim said he pleaded for his life.
The victim was reportedly uninjured when officers arrived. Investigators have detailed damage to the front door where the suspects are believed to have broken in. Evidence of the robbery has also been collected and documented.
The victim and his 2 roommates have told police the robbery may have been planned in advance. They say that a day before the burglary they noticed that both the front and back doors of their home had been left open, almost as if someone had been inside but didn't take anything.
