HERCULES -- Police are on the lookout for three men who staged a home-invasion robbery Sunday at the apartment of a disabled woman.
Around 2:34 p.m., Hercules officers responded to the 100 block of Paradise Drive for a report of an armed robbery. The victim, a 62-year-old woman confined to a wheelchair, told police she was outside on her front porch when she one of the suspects approached her and asked to speak with her inside her apartment. He then pushed her wheelchair inside and into her bedroom.
The woman said the man then took money from her purse and the jewelry she was wearing. Two other men came into the apartment, but the woman did not see where they went or what they took once they were inside.
As the suspects were leaving, one of the woman's sons, who also lives with her at the apartment, came home. He didn't do anything, he told police, because the suspects were armed. He told police jewelry was also missing from his bedroom dresser.
According to the woman, the suspects fled southbound on San Pablo Avenue in a Silver Honda Accord with tinted windows.
The suspects were described as, all African-American males, all in their mid 20s. The first suspect was wearing a blue hoodie, blue jeans and boots. The second suspect was wearing a brown leather jacket, a black beanie and boots. The third suspect was wearing plaid pants and a black shirt.
Two of the suspects were said to be armed with handguns, police said.
Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact the Hercules Police Department at 510-724-1111.
