Two men suspected in a series of home-invasion robberies in Menifee and Sun City appear to have struck again, the sheriff’s department said today.
On Tuesday at about 9:15 p.m., two men tried to grab a 53-year-old woman sitting on her front porch in the 26000 block of Rancho Serena Street in Menifee, according to sheriff’s Sgt. Lisa McConnell.
The victim got loose and ran into the yard, while the two men escaped in a dark-colored sport utility vehicle, McConnell said.
Nothing was taken and the woman was not injured, she said.
In two previous incidents, on Oct. 28 and 30, two masked men with a gun and a knife entered senior citizens’ homes through unlocked doors and stole cash and jewelry, sheriff’s officials said. Residents were home in both cases, but no one was injured.
Sheriff’s officials described the men as black, wearing dark pants and dark, hooded sweatshirts. One was about 6 feet tall with a chunky build and 35-45 years old. The other was about 5-10 with an average build and 25-35 years old.
Detectives asked anyone with information to call the sheriff’s Perris station at 951-210-1000 or email PerrisStation@riversidesheriff.org.
