Officials probe attempted Pico Rivera home-invasion

PICO RIVERA — Sheriff’s investigators continued their probe Thursday into an attempted home-invasion in which a man was pistol-whipped earlier this week.
The crime was reported about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 800 block of Arrington Avenue as a man in his mid 40s and his teenage daughter arrived home, Detective C. Sanchez of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau said.
“Three (Latino men) confronted a father and daughter at their front door,” the detective said. No further description of the suspects, who carried handguns, was available.
“They pistol-whipped the father and tried to get access into the house,” he said.
After a brief commotion, Sanchez said, the assailants abandoned the crime and fled.
It wasn’t clear Thursday if the men were able to force their way into the home, Sanchez said, however it did not initially appear that anything had been stolen from the house.
Detectives were also trying to figure out why the home was targeted.
“We don’t know what they were looking for,” Sanchez said.
Initial reports indicated the suspects fled the area in a gray Honda CRV, however Sanchez said that detail remained under investigation Thursday.
Officials at the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station deferred all questions to the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau.
