The day before Christmas Eve, Richmond police responded to a call where three masked suspects broke into an apartment and then stole a car.
Richmond detectives say the home invasion happened at the Residences of Westover Hills apartments, off the 5800 block of Westover Drive.
The masked suspects broke into an apartment around 1:30 a.m., and robbed the two people inside.
The victims weren’t harmed but the suspects took off in the victims’ car.
“It’s scary. I have kids,” said Kenneth Edwards, who lives at the apartment complex.
Edwards says he’s going to take extra measures to make sure his family is safe.
“Materials can be replaced,” said Edwards. “Lives can’t.”
“It’s Christmas time. Some people are trying to get some presents. That’s messed up and all,” said another resident James Dacosta.
If you know anything about this crime, call Richmond Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000. It’s anonymous.
