Re: Home invasion robbery occurs in south Jeffco
Jefferson County, Colorado ? At on June 30th sheriff?s deputies responded to the 6500 block of South Arbutus Circle after receiving a 911 call from a man who reported that he had been tied up and robbed at gunpoint inside his apartment.
Deputies located the victim and interviewed him at the scene.The victim told deputies that he works at Southwest Plaza Mall and he left work around The victim noticed a ?brand new,? black, 4-door Cadillac in the parking lot as pulled out of the mall.During his drive home the victim noticed that the Cadillac appeared to be following him.As the victim turned into his apartment complex he observed the Cadillac turn in as well and drive in the opposite direction.The victim then dismissed the idea that he was being followed and assumed the Cadillac?s owner lived in the same complex.
A few minutes after the victim returned home he took his dog for a walk around the complex.As the victim returned home he was approached by a man in a mask who pointed a handgun at him and ordered him inside.The victim was told to lie chest-down on the floor and face the wall while a second suspect entered the apartment and began carrying out items of value.The suspects then duct taped the victim?s hands and feet and ?hog tied? his limbs together.The victim was threatened and ordered not to contact the police.The victim lay still for several minutes to make certain the suspects were gone before finally freeing himself and calling the authorities.The victim believes the robbery occurred around
