A Sacramento couple, both in their 70s, arrived home early on Thursday morning and were confronted by eight black male adults in their driveway. Once inside the home, a surveillance camera inside the property captured the Home Invasion as the robbers held the elderly couple at gunpoint and robbed them of their personal property.

Neighbor makes 911 call to Sacramento police

As reported by ABC 7, Sacramento Police received a 911 call from the couple’s neighbor to report a robbery in process. Officers arrived at the home to find the elderly victims, who told them eight black male adults had approached them on their arrival at the residence.

At least one man was armed with a handgun as all eight suspects entered the home, asking the male homeowner where he kept his money. When the homeowner said he didn’t have any more money in the house, other than around $35 in his wallet, the robber then accused him of lying. The eight robbers then made off with the couple’s personal property.

A total of four Sacramento home invasions in one night

The couple was not alone in being hit by crime, as three other similar armed home invasions occurred in the same area on late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning. Police investigators are now trying to establish whether all the similar crimes are related.

The first reported robbery happened at 11:49 on Wednesday evening in Jacinto Avenue.

The homeowner parked his car in the driveway and was exiting the vehicle when approached by four armed black men. The suspects stole the homeowner’s personal property and left.

A second home invasion was reported at 11:52 p.m. on Wednesday evening in Hermitage Way. Again the victim was leaving his vehicle in the driveway when he was approached by two black men demanding money.

One of the suspects told the homeowner that he was armed and punched him in the face before stealing the homeowner’s personal property.

A report came in for the third home invasion at 1:41 a.m.

on Thursday in Cavalier Way. The female homeowner had just pulled into her garage when two black men confronted her, demanding money. In that case, the woman told the suspects she had no money and called out for her daughter. The men then fled empty-handed.
