Authorities on Tuesday released an artist’s rendering of one of two men who carried out a predawn home-invasion armed robbery at the home of a 93-year-old Point Loma woman.
The thieves went to the residence in the 3500 block of Garrison Street about 1:30 a.m. last Wednesday and rushed in when a caregiver answered their knock on the front door, according to San Diego police.
One of the intruders threatened the nurse with a knife and pushed her to the floor while his accomplice went into a bedroom where the resident was sleeping and stole valuables. The robbers left the house and fled in an unknown direction.
The thieves were described as thin black men who appeared to be in their late teens or early to mid-20s, police said. The armed one — the subject of the sketch put out this afternoon — was described as being about 5 feet 10 inches tall and clean-shaven, with short hair. He was wearing jeans, a dark jacket, white shoes and a knit cap.
The other robber was somewhat taller, had a short afro and wore a dark jacket or hooded sweatshirt, police said.
Anyone with information about the case was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or contact the agency online at sdcrimestoppers.org. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
