Two robbers armed with guns pulled off a home invasion robbery in Hemet before sunrise today, and deputies said they have arrested one of the suspects.
The robbery was in the early morning hours in the 41000 block of Shadow Mountain Way, sheriff’s deputies reported.
The victims said two men knocked on their door and then forced their way into the residence, brandishing handguns.
One of the suspects ordered the two victims into a bedroom at gunpoint, while the second suspect stole property from inside.
The two men left the residence inside an older white Nissan Pathfinder, possibly driven by a third suspect, deputies said.
Investigators learned one of the gunman was allegedly Vincent Jackson, 37, of Hemet. A search of Jackson’s residence located some of the victims’ stolen property and a pellet gun that was believed to have been used in the robbery, deputies said.
Jackson was booked into the Smith Correctional Facility for home invasion robbery, kidnapping, and using a firearm during the commission of a serious felony.
The other one or two suspects were not located, and deputies asked anyone with information to call Investigator Dorrough at (951) 791-3400.
