Cash stolen in Santa Fe Springs home invasion robbery

SANTA FE SPRINGS — A man armed with a baseball bat and his companion who pretended to have a gun barged their way into a house and robbed the residents of cash Wednesday night.
Lt. Jay Tatman estimated the amount taken as “several hundreds”. Police believe the home invasion robbery in the 11500 block of Claymore Street wasn’t a random attack but think the victims were targeted, according to Tatman.
The robbery took place just after 10 p.m.
When a resident answered the door, he said two robbers forced their way in. The suspects claimed someone who lives at the house owes them money.
He said one of the residents pulled out cash and asked how much was the debt. The robbers took all the money and fled.
The bat-wielding suspect was described as a Latino, 20, wearing a black jacket, black shorts and black beanie. The other suspect who simulated having a firearm was described as a Latino, 20, garbed in a black jacket and blue pants.
Anyone with information is urged to call the investigations bureau of the Santa Fe Springs Police Service Center at 562-409-1850.
