A woman was the victim of a home invasion robbery Wednesday night after she returned home from dinner. Teresa K. Lindsey, of the 4300 block of Fairfax Drive, heard a knock at her door shortly after 9 p.m.. She looked out and when she didn't see anyone she opened the door. As Lindsey opened the door, the suspect forced his way into the residence. The man, described as between 5-feet-six-inches to 5-feet-8-inches tall and 150 to 165 pounds, black with medium length dreadlocks and wearing a green t-shirt and jeans, demanded money and other items. Lindsey gave him what she had and the man forced her into her bedroom closet before running away.
Two armed robbers took cash and cell phones from a couple living at the Bradenton Arms Apartments.
A pair of armed robbers forced their way into a Bradenton apartment, at 4545 W 26th St., before dawn Sunday, firing shots and demanding cash. A couple answered a knock at their door to find a man and woman dressed in black and aiming guns at them. The heavily-built woman wore a black T-shirt, black pants and black boots. She fired two shots inside the apartment, but no one was struck. Her stocky male companion also wore black clothing as well as a ski mask. The suspects ordered the couple to give them their money and cell phones. The victims waited until after 10 a.m. Sunday to report the home invasion to police.
