PSL police searching for armed suspects in home invasions

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (WFLX) - Port St. Lucie police investigators are searching for three people involved in two armed home invasions in the city this week.

Police say the first incident happened Tuesday around 11 p.m. when a woman pulled into her driveway at a home in the 1800 block of SE Carvalho St.

The woman told police she was returning from her job in Jensen Beach and had just left her vehicle when she heard footsteps behind her. When she turned around, she saw a man armed with a silver handgun.

The woman told police she dropped to her knees and pleaded with the suspect not to shoot her. The attacker took the woman's purse and ran off and met up with another man at the end of the driveway.

In a second incident on Wednesday, police responded to the 2100 block of S.E. Bowie St. to investigate an armed home invasion robbery around 11:50 p.m.

Investigators met with a husband and wife, who had just returned home, and noticed a car that was close behind them.

The couple went into their home and left the door open to let their dog out.

As this was happening, police said three men burst into the home and demanded the wife's watch, jewelry, purse and the husband's wallet. One of the men was armed.

Police believe these two robberies are related.

The three suspects' descriptions are as follows:

Suspect No. 1 was armed with a silver semi-automatic pistol and is described as a black male 6 feet tall, weighing 140-160 pounds, wearing a black hooded sweat shirt, black pants and a black bandanna around the lower portion of his face.

Suspect No. 2 is described as a black man 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 140-160 pounds, short dark hair, wearing a black hooded sweat shirt, black pants, black gloves and a black bandanna covering the lower portion of his face.

Suspect No. 3 is described as a Hispanic man 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing approximately 200 pounds, short dark color hair, wearing a black sweat shirt (no hood), black pants and a black bandanna around the lower portion of his face.

Anyone with information is asked to call (772) 871-5001.
