Three people were injured during a home invasion robbery Wednesday night in Fremont where four suspects with guns and masks broke into an occupied home to steal money, jewelry and electronics, according to police.
Officers responded to the 45000 block of Little Foot Place at 8:42 p.m. after a female caller reported that she had locked herself in the bathroom and the suspects were inside the home.
There were seven people home at the time of the robbery, including two minors.
During the robbery, the suspects pistol-whipped and physically dragged some of the victims, according to police.
Three victims suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene.
Police said the robbery took just a few minutes, between 8:37 p.m. and 8:40 p.m., based on security video from a neighboring residence. Losses were estimated at roughly $8,000.
There were four suspects who participated in the robbery as well as a fifth who drove the getaway vehicle, a small, dark SUV.
The first suspect was described as a white or Hispanic man, roughly 5 feet 8 inches tall with broad shoulders. He was wearing black, sagging jeans.
The second suspect was a white or Hispanic man, roughly 5 feet 7 inches tall with a muscular build. He was wearing black jeans and black gloves.
The third was a white man, roughly 6 feet tall with a skinny build and wearing white jeans, while the fourth was a Hispanic man, roughly 5 feet 10 inches tall with a muscular build and a heavy accent. He was wearing dark pants.
All four were armed with handguns, police said.
Anyone with additional information about the crime is asked to call Fremont police at (510) 790-6900.
