FREMONT, Calif. - Fremont Detectives are investigating a home invasion robbery that occurred in the Weibel neighborhood Wednesday night just after 8:30 p.m.
According to Fremont Police, the dispatch center received a 911 call of an in-progress residential burglary, later upgraded to a home invasion robbery,
occurring in the 45000 block of Little Foot Place. The female caller stated she was locked in the bathroom and could hear voices of unfamiliar people inside the home.
"It took me a second that something bad is happening I just screamed don't shoot her and before I even completed my sentence someone came in and hit my head knocked me to the floor and started asking me for money," said Prasanth, the homeowner.
Officers were immediately dispatched and responded with lights and siren to the location. When they arrived the suspects had already left the home.
Three family members including the couple's teenage daughter were pistol-whipped.
"He came and put the gun at my head I was down I sat down and I was screaming and he dragged me into that room by my hair," said Radhika, Prasanth's wife.
The family thinks the burglars came through the front door because the lock wasn't turned completely.
"We always felt safe, one incident won't take away anything from us, yeah, we'll be more careful but we love this neighborhood and that doesn't change it," said Prasanth.
The suspects demanded money and stole items including jewelry, currency and electronic devices.
The loss is valued at approximately $8,000. Fremont Fire and Paramedics Plus responded and provided medical aid to the victims at the scene.
Patrol officers and detectives worked throughout the night contacting neighbors, collecting evidence and taking statements from all of the victims.
