California family speaks after home invasion


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CBS NEWSPATH) – The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department released video of a horrifying home invasion that happened in a matter of seconds.

Two thieves burst through the a door and are seen dragging an elderly man across the living room.

You hear screams.

“One of the guys just grabbed him and tore him up,” said the victim’s son.

“They asked him, ‘Where’s all the money? Where is all the money?’ My father said, ‘I’m an old man, I got no money,’ and just kept screaming, ” the son said.

The homeowner, who is still shaken, has asked to conceal his identity.

“My mom is scared, my wife is scared…everyone was scared,” said the son.

His father was the only one home when the suspects rammed the garage door to sneak in.

“Typically there are some telltale signs from the onset why the victim is targeted,” according to Sgt. Hampton with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department. 

However, the homeowner believes this is personal.

“Our investigators and our patrol officers did some very diligent of work and were able to make two arrests in this case,” said Hampton.

Police are still looking for the third suspect.

The homeowner, who is still angry and mad, hopes this video will lead to the arrest of third suspect so this doesn’t happen to another family.
