Robbery Suspects Sought After Home Invasion In Kitiyama Neighborhood

A man was struck in the head with a gun during the incident

Police are searching for three suspects who reportedly ransacked the home of an elderly couple during a home invasion robbery Monday afternoon.

Union City police officers said the robbery was reported around 2 p.m. in the Kitiyama neighborhood after two suspects forced their way inside of the home of an elderly couple as the elderly man was trying to shut the front door while returning from home.

Police said the first suspect pushed both homewoners down to the floor and "forcefully removed the elderly female's jewelry." 

The second suspect found a young adult male locked in a bedroom, struck him in the head with the gun, ransacked the bedroom and took more property, police said. 

Both suspects fled on foot to a waiting vehicle, described as a newer model silver Audi sedan or BMW with chrome rims and tinted black windows.

The vehicle was last seen being driven past Kitiyama Elementary School onto Medallion Drive, according to a Union City Police press release.

The first suspect was described as a thin black or Hspanic male between the ages of 19 and 20 years old. Police said witnesses said he concealed his face and was armed with a handgun.

The second suspect was described as a thin, 5-foot-11, dark-skinned black male about 20 years old who was last seen wearing a black hoodie sweatshirt and was armed with a gun.

Police had no description of the third suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call Union City Police Department's Tip Line at 510-675-5207 or call Det. Valdehueza at 510-675-5354.

@ Artie...These robbers don't have permits, they don't care about the Law. their "Get Away Car" is parked nearby. If you see 3 Black men, in a white or silver colored car, parked in your neighborhood, call the Union City Police and get the license plate number of the car. Use a camera but "do not approach". If you see one man, in the car, the crime is "in Progress" Call the Union City police and say "Crime is in progress, men armed". Then hunker down because the "lead will Fly" with the Union City Police" and bullets will be flying everywhere including into homes and cars in the area. Do not bring your firearms out of your home, or you will be "Fair Game" for both the Criminals and the Union City Police.

Aquino says his nephew was on his way home from the gym just before 11 p.m. That's when he was rear-ended near the corner of Market Street and Stanford Avenue in North Oakland. "Whether that was intentional or accidental, that is yet to be determined," OPD spokesperson Sgt. Johnna Watson said. "Our victim did do the right thing. He pulled over." Nakano turned the corner and got out on Market Street. Police say traffic cameras captured two men in a silver, newer model sedan, confronting the victim and shooting him one time.
