Two home-invasion robberies in Clallam County in one weekend
July 10th, 2012 - 5:40am
(Port Angeles) -- Local authorities are investigating a second armed home invasion robbery attempt.
The first happened early Saturday morning in Gales Addition east of Port Angeles, the latest early Sunday morning between P-A and Sequim.
In the latest crime, three men attempted an armed home invasion in the 300 block of South Barr Road about 1:30 Sunday morning.
The home owner shot at the fleeing suspects -- and it is unknown if there are any injuries.
One of the suspects knocked on the back door asking the resident for gasoline through the closed and locked door.
The man asked to use a phone and the home owner retrieved both a phone and his handgun.
When the home owner went to open the door, a second suspect appeared pointing a gun at the home owner, who then quickly shut the door and fired a shot through the door.
The two suspects fled, possibly to a car on the roadway being driving by the third suspect, who was being contacted at the same time by a next door neighbor asking about why the car was there.
Another suspect then got into the car and they drove north on S. Barr Road.
Deputies, Sequim Police Officers, Port Angeles Police Officers, and Border Patrol responded to the scene and were unable to locate the car or any of the suspects.
There was no evidence of any injuries.
Suspect number 1 is described as a white male, in his early 20's, about
5-feet-6 inches tall, having a slender build and dark hair, wearing a dark blue pull over hoodie and dark baseball cap.
Suspect number 2 was a white male with a gun, described as being in his early 20's, about six feet tall.
He had blonde hair, a slender build, and was wearing a dark hoodie, and dark-colored bandana over his face.
The car is described as a dark colored two-door small European style car with loud exhaust pipes and low clearance to the ground.
The driver was described as being in mid 20's, with clean-cut,
This incident was very similar to the situation where three men entered and robbed a couple just east of Port Angeles early Saturday morning. Investigators believe there is a good chance the crimes are related.
If anyone has information concerning the suspects you are asked to call the Clallam County Sheriff's Office.
Officials are advising the public to address people through locked doors when anyone comes to their door requesting any sort of assistance and call 9-1-1 if the person or persons are unknown.
