Home Invasion Robbery

Submitted By Geneva Bosques, Fremont PD

At 11:39 a.m., on Saturday, September 8, 2012, Patrol Officers responded to a home invasion robbery that had just occurred on the 48000 block of Purpleleaf Street in Fremont. The victim, a 49 year old female from Fremont, was home alone napping in her bed when she awoke to find four Hispanic males standing around her, one of whom had a gun. The victim tried to reach her land-line, which they grabbed from her and she then went for her cell phone, but again was unable to reach it.

After taking the cell phone away from her, the men began beating her and attempted to bind her with duct tape. The woman fought for several minutes and was able to escape to a neighbor's house. The men left the house via the back fence, where they probably had a car waiting. The victim was transported to a local hospital to receive medical care for facial injuries. Suspects took jewelry from the home.

Suspect #1 - Hispanic male adult, 40 years of age, 5' 6", grey shirt and jeans with a small handgun.
Suspect #2 - Hispanic male adult, early 20's, 5' 6", thin build, burgundy shirt and jeans.
Suspect 2 & 3 - Described as Hispanic male adults.

Possible associated vehicle - black older model Acura with heavily worn down paint.
