The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects and suspect vehicle in an armed robbery investigation that occurred this past Thursday afternoon. Shortly after 3:30pm, the seventeen year old victim was working in the front yard of his residence located in the 9000 block of S Lac Jac near the City of Reedley. The victim’s eight year old brother was inside the house.
As he worked, a black colored, four door pick up pulled along the side of the house and stopped near him. Two subjects got out of the vehicle and asked for water as their truck was overheating. As the victim assisted them, a third subject came up from behind, pointed a gun at him, and demanded money.
The victim was then ordered into the house where one subject held him and his brother at gunpoint while three others stole property from inside the home. After about a half hour, all of the subjects left.
The suspects were described as four Hispanic males. At least two were armed with handguns.
