On January 22, 2018, at 1:20 A.M. the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Communications Center received a 911 call from the 3700 block of 42nd Avenue within south Sacramento. The female caller indicated there were several males armed with firearms inside her garage and they were demanding money and other belongings from other people at the location. The caller also indicated she was watching the suspects on a video surveillance system from another part of the home.
Sheriff’s Department personnel arrived on-scene and upon their arrival, at least four subjects fled from the location on foot. A perimeter was established in the neighborhood and people inside the home were directed outside by deputies. While speaking with the victims and other witnesses, deputies determined there were multiple people inside the home playing card games and potentially gambling, when the males entered the location and robbed them.
During a search of the area, deputies located two subjects who were later identified as being suspects in the robbery. Deputies also located one firearm. There are at least two additional suspects outstanding and Sheriff’s Department personnel are continuing their investigation.
Detectives are asking anyone with information relating to this incident, to please contact the Sheriff’s Department at (916) 874-5115 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at (916) 443-HELP. Tip information may also be left anonymously at www.sacsheriff.com or by calling (916) 874-TIPS (8477).
