Lower Haight neighbors are bit shaken after hearing of this scary home-invasion robbery where armed men forced their way into a home and attacked the residents.
The crime happened just before 4 a.m. on Wednesday; the suspects surprised the sleeping residents, one of whom was punched repeatedly, according to news accounts. Haighteration spoke with one of the residents who gave this chilling account of the early-morning violence:
They specifically asked for money and searched through the cabinets for valuables. They stuck the gun in one of my roommates' faces and hit the other roommate in the back of his head with the gun twice.The woman and her boyfriend were in her bedroom when the gunmen tried to enter, she said. "[O]ne of the two men tried really hard to get into my boyfriend and my's bedroom but we were blocking him from coming in and he shouted to the other robber to shoot the door but the other robber never did shoot the door," she said via e-mail to Haighteration.
