Agana Heights on alert with home invaders on the loose

Posted: Updated:

It was an early morning scare for an Agana Heights family. Police now looking for four people who broke into the family's home in the middle of the night. The suspects getting away with various belongings. And now, the home invasion and robbery is leaving neighbors and the village mayor on edge.

Police say it was a nightmare for a woman and her children living in this apartment building on Tutuhan Street in Agana Heights. "It's very scary. It's unusual but very scary and I hope the perpetrators would be caught right away and I'm sure the residents are up in arms right now," she said.

Four men forced their way inside. It happened just before 2am Tuesday. Guam Police say the suspects ransacked the place and stole several items before taking off on foot. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

The incident happening just steps away from where Michelle and her family sleep. "We shouldn't expect that anywhere. I've only been here a couple of months and it's kind of scary to know that happened only a few feet from where we live," said the neighbor.

Investigators say the four suspects were last seen wearing masks, dark colored clothing and gloves. One suspect also wore a camouflage jacket. Both the Sinajana and Agana Heights neighborhood watch groups are on the lookout.

Village mayor Paul McDonald is also cautioning others in his community, urging, "Make sure that you are aware of who is out there and what they are doing and if you see unusual people hanging out then call police."

Anyone with information is asked to call GPD at 472-8911 or Guam CrimeStoppers at 477-HELP (4357).
