Folks on the Pasadena Neighborhood Watch email list were barraged this week with a flurry of email alerts from neighbors and the Pasadena Police Department regarding a series of criminal confrontations. The Pasadena Star-News has the details on one of the incidents:

Two teenage boys used a handgun to carry out a home invasion robbery Friday, police said.

The crime occurred about 6:30 a.m. at a house in the 1100 block of Romney Drive, Pasadena police Lt. Chris Russ said.

A 47-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman were home but were not injured, the lieutenant said.

“They were in bed when they awoke to suspects inside their home,” Russ said.

One of the robbers pointed a gun at the man, as the crooks proceeded to help themselves to a laptop computer, a Rolex watch, a small amount of cash and other items, he said.
They also stole a key to car parked in the driveway, but were apparently unable to start it after they jammed the key in the ignition, Russ added.

“As the suspects were leaving, the male victim came outside and confronted them,” he said.

The armed robber fired one shot at another parked car belonging to the man, Russ said, before fleeing on foot toward Church Street.

Police searched with a helicopter and a bloodhound but were unable to find the robbers, he said.

One of the robbers was described as a Latino boy of 15 or 16 years old, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and between 140 and 150 pounds. He had short black hair, wore all black clothing with black tennis shoes and carried a small silver handgun.

The other robber was also 15 or 16 and was either black with a light complexion or Latino with a dark complexion. He had short black hair, a white t-shirt, light blue jeans and tennis shoes.
