Richmond police Capt. Paul Kiniry said the first home invasion occurred at 9:50 p.m. in the 2300 block of Ambrose Street in the city’s East End and involved three armed suspects _ two with handguns and one with a shotgun _ who burst through the front door of a home occupied by a man and his two juvenile children.
Kiniry said one of the suspects struck the father twice in the head. The father later refused medical attention; the children were not injured.
Kiniry said the suspects, who stole various personal property, were black males. One was 5 feet, 6 inches tall with a slim build, about 30 years old with close-trimmed facial hair and wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans and brandishing a handgun. The other suspect with a handgun was said to be about 20 years old with a medium build and wearing a pull-over mask. The third suspect, brandishing a shotgun, was described as about 27 years old, 6 feet tall with a slim build, a goatee and all black clothing.
