Cathedral City police were looking today for two men suspected of carrying out a home invasion robbery.
The victims told Cathedral City police the two men sneaked into the home in the 31000 block of San Ardo Road at about 11:50 p.m. Sunday, awakened a female, placed a gun to her head and demanded to know the whereabouts of someone else who lived there but who wasn’t home, said Cathedral City police Sgt. Corwin de Veas.
They also stole property.
The victim’s mother arrived and confronted the suspects with a knife, de Veas said. The suspects, identified as documented gang members Thomas Wayne Heddy and Mario Guillen, tried to cover their faces with their shirts.
They ran outside and got in a white van, shooting at the person they were looking for, who had just arrived at the residence, de Veas said.
Heddy was on probation for assault with a deadly weapon, the sergeant said. Guillen was on probation for a narcotics offense. The van driver was not identified.
Heddy was described as white, 5 feet 8, 190 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Guillen was described as Hispanic, 5 feet 7, 145 pounds. They should be considered armed and dangerous, de Veas said.
Anyone who spots them should call the Cathedral City Police Department at 760=770-0303.
