HOLLADAY, Utah (ABC4 Utah)- Police are looking for three armed suspects after a home invasion in Holladay Friday morning.
It happened at 4:45 near 2000 East Cotton Willow Ln. at the Cottonwood Cove neighborhood in Holladay.
Lt. Brian Lohrke with the Unified Police Department says they are looking for two men and one woman.
“Two male suspects, one female suspect entered a home. One of the male suspects had a gun,” he said.”
Unified Police say the suspects ordered one of the female occupants to get on the ground. The other was still asleep. Police say they robbed the women of their purses and then fled the scene heading southbound on Highland Dr. in a silver Dodge Magnum.
“They were last seen in a silver Dodge Magnum, either a late 90’s model or early 2000’s, we’re trying to get more specifics on the vehicle. But, we are looking for those suspects and that vehicle,” said Lohrke.
The home did have surveillance cameras. They were able to capture some images of the suspects and their get away vehicle as they fled the scene. Detectives are currently reviewing that video.
“Hopefully we get some video or some stills and send that out to the public to help us find the suspects,” said Lt. Lohrke.
Lt. Lohrke says there’s no immediate threat to the area. He says typically these sort of crimes are targeted acts and believe there may be some sort of relationships between the victims and the suspects.
“Usually in home invasion robberies — and I’m not saying this one in particular — but there is some kind of connection, some reason why the suspects would target a certain residence. These home robberies do not happen at random and that’s what I want to stress to the public and we’re trying to figure out what the connection is between the victim and the suspects.” said Lt. Lohrke. “We’re looking at the actual residence and what the history has been here.”
One neighbor who spoke to ABC4 News said it has been a revolving door of residents living at the home since it is a rental. He said at one time a woman and her boyfriend were living there but wasn’t sure if those were the same people involved in this case. He said he was “concerned about his safety,” ever since.
This is a developing story. Details will be posted as they become available.
