Suspect Posed as PG&E Employee Before This Morning’s Robbery, Say Police
On July 19, 2017, at about 8:20 a.m., officers with the Eureka Police Department responded to the 1100 block of 6th Street for the report of an armed robbery at an occupied residence.
The victim told officers that an unknown male knocked on his door and claimed to be with PG&E. Two other male suspects armed with firearms then rushed the victim and assaulted and restrained him. The suspects ransacked a bedroom and took a laptop before fleeing in what appeared to be an older model black Honda Civic with paint damage on the roof.
The male suspects were described as white or Hispanic in their late 20’s or early 30’s. One suspect was wearing a white dress shirt and tie. Their vehicle was last seen west on 6th Street. The victim refused medical attention.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Bise at (707) 441-4109.
