Police seek witnesses to Monday home invasion robbery


EPDpatch_smEdmonds police are looking for possible witnesses to a home invasion robbery Monday afternoon that left an elderly couple in the 1000 block of 8th Avenue South shaken but unhurt.

According to Edmonds police spokesman Sgt. Shane Hawley, the couple — a woman in her 80s and her husband, in his 90s — reported that a group of three men forced their way into the residence when the woman answered her door around 2:40 p.m. Monday, June 15.

The couple “went along with the robbers’ instructions to sit while the house was ransacked,” Hawley said, adding that no weapons were used.

The suspects left after about an hour, and what they took is still yet to be determined, police said.

The three suspects are described as a white male, 5’10” and 220 lbs., a white male, 6’2” and 220 lbs. and a Hispanic male, 5’7” and 220 pounds, with a large stomach.

No arrests have been made in this case and it is still under investigation.

Police are asking anyone who might have been in the area between 1:30-2:40 p.m. Monday to call the EPD tip line at 425-771-0212.
