Reward Offered in Home-Invasion Case
Port Hueneme police are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of two teenage boys who broke into a condominium and terrorized a family at gunpoint last month.
The two teens broke into the condo in the 700 block of East Pleasant Valley about 1:15 p.m. May 5. They forced a husband and wife to the floor at gunpoint and demanded to know the whereabouts of their son, whom they threatened to kill.
After fruitlessly searching the condo for the teenage son, the pair fled, police said.
The gunman is described as stocky, Latino, 5 feet, 3 inches tall with slicked-back black hair. He was wearing a puffy sports jacket and was holding a silver handgun.
His accomplice is described as Latino, 5 feet, 11 inches tall, 145 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing blue baggy pants and a blue, hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with any information is asked to call 385-TALK. Tipsters can remain anonymous. Any tip that leads to charges being filed in connection with the crime is eligible for a $1,000 reward.
