Police: 4 Arrested After Burbank Home Invasion, Stabbing

BURBANK, Calif. -- A 52-year-old man was stabbed in a home-invasion robbery in Burbank on Monday, but all four suspects in the attack were captured after a brief pursuit that left one officer injured, police said.

The home invasion occurred at about 1:50 a.m. in the 1200 block of North Lamer Street, said Burbank police Sgt. Travis Irving.

The stabbing victim was taken to a hospital and was stable, police said. Two other people in the home -- the victim's father and another adult -- were not injured.

The suspects, armed with knives and handguns, were seen driving away in a silver vehicle driven by a woman, Irving said.

Officers located the car shortly after the robbery but the driver sped off when police tried to pull the vehicle over. One man got out of the car and tried to flee on foot, but he was quickly apprehended.

The pursuit ended at Glenoaks Boulevard and Amherst Drive, and the female driver and two other men were arrested. One officer suffered moderate injuries when his car crashed during the pursuit.

"It appears the victim and suspects knew each other," Irving said. The home invasion was not random, he said, although the motive was not known.

Arrested on suspicion of attempted murder were Jacqueline Santiago, 30, of Pacoima; Brad Holland, 27, of North Hollywood; Alex Rojas, 32, of Sylmar; and Roberto Santiago, 24, of San Fernando, Irving said.
