Superintendent beaten and robbed during home invasion

Las Lomas police are investigating a home invasion on Monday, which has left a police superintendent and his family shaken up.

The robbery took place around 3:10am, when three masked; gun-toting men, stormed a house in El Carmen.

The superintendent told GML that the thieves gained entry by kicking in the front door and immediately demanding cash.

The man said he was ordered to lie on the living room floor, while his elderly parents were shifted to another location in the house.

The superintendent said he and his 24-year old nephew were then beaten and tied up, before the thieves made off with jewellery, cash, cellphones, bottles of alcohol and household appliances.

He reported that the ordeal lasted for approximately 10 minutes.
