Gunmen Invade Walnut Creek Home Monday; Confront Family


Walnut Creek police are investigating an armed, home invasion robbery at a residence in the 2800 block of Oak Grove Road Monday, during which two armed men reportedly made off with a safe from the home.

Investigators said two men, both brandishing handguns, entered the home at around 8:50 a.m. and confronted the residents – described by police as a husband and wife and their child – and stole a yet to be determined amount of cash and personal property.

The suspects fled on foot southbound toward Cedro Lane. A tan or gold mini-van (possibly a Honda Odyssey) was seen fleeing the area at the time but has not yet been positively identified as being associated to the suspects. No one was injured.

WCPD Officers arrived on scene within minutes of the crime being reported but the suspects were not located. A Pleasant Hill Police Department K-9 unit assisted in conducting a track with negative results.

Anyone with information as to the identity of the suspects in this crime or who can provide additional information is asked to contact Detective Bill Jeha at 925-256-3518 or Sergeant David Rangel at 925-256-3573.

#1: Black male, approximately 20-30 years old, wearing a gray hoodie and blue jeans.

#2: Light skinned Black or Hispanic male, unknown age or clothing, wearing a mask of some type over his face.


  1. Home invasion – how scary. For those of us who try our best to take preventive measures, there’s not much you can do if the other guy has a gun.

  2. I bet proposition 47 also played a role in this event and that the perpetrators were either out one parole, or have warrants on them. Crime is soaring and we need to wake up!

  3. Nothing we can do Greg. Jerry Brown and those who voted for him support this weak law that do nothing to scare off criminals.

  4. Greg’s implication that Prop 47 reduces jail time for violent offenders is factually inaccurate.

    Any indication that the perps targeted the victims? Does not sound random. Horrifying if it was.
