Authorities Friday sought information on five suspects who entered a Fairfax home and assaulted the residents during a possible follow-home robbery.
Two victims spent the evening of Nov. 26 at a restaurant before walking to their home in the 100 block of North Fuller Avenue, near Pan Pacific Park, about 10:30 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Two suspects wearing tactical vests with what appeared to be police badges approached and pointed a handgun at the victims as they arrived at their home. The suspects punched the victims and forced their way inside, where an unknown number of additional residents were located.
The two suspects continued to assault the residents while gathering property from inside, police said. Three additional suspects also entered the home to aid with the robbery.
