Search still on for suspects in armed home invasion

One injured in home invasion in unincorporated Renton, Monday, March 4.

Folks are on edge after an armed home invasion left one injured in unincorporated Renton Monday, March 4. Authorities continue to search for four unknown suspects, two of which were armed.

Around 9 p.m., four men dressed in dark clothing forced open the front door of a family home located in the 15100 block of Southeast 141 Place, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

A mom, dad and their two sons in their 20s were home at the time of the incident. One of the men pistol-whipped the father, causing a laceration to his head. Suspects also threatened family members.

The group of suspects then ran through the house in search of money and after several minutes, fled.

No cars were spotted in the area, but a K-9 police track determined the suspects got into some type of vehicle down the street. There is no description of the vehicle at this time.

Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. Ryan Abbott said they know the suspects were looking for money, but it’s unclear how much was taken or if any other items were taken, aside from one cell phone that was found a few blocks away.

It is not believed any additional damage was done to the property.

This is an open investigation. Any information can be called into the non-emergency line at 206-296-3311.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
