One of two home-invasion robbery victims called police, who took two subjects into custody Wednesday in Glendale. Janet Zappala reports for the NBC4 News at Noon on Wednesday Jan. 2, 2013.
Two people are in custody and officers are searching for a third subject after a home-invasion robbery Wednesday morning in Glendale.
An assault occurred during the home invasion in the 700 block of Patterson Street. One of two residents in the home at the time of the robbery was treated for a head injury, according to police.
Police received a call from the other resident at about 5:15 a.m. as the home-invasion robbery was in progress, police said. Responding officers saw the robbers traveling in a vehicle south on Concord Street near the 134 Freeway before the driver crashed at Wilson Avenue.
"Two suspects attempted to flee, but they were immediately taken into custody," said Glendale Sgt. Tom Lorenz. "We also recovered one firearm."
The third individual might have exited the car during the pursuit, said Lorenz. A police helicopter and SWAT vehicles were in the area early Wednesday afternoon.
