Renton family forced into own home and robbed by 3 armed men

RENTON, Wash. — A family with children coming home were forced into their Renton home while three armed men ransacked the house, according to the Renton Police Department.

Around 1:24 a.m. on Feb. 27, Renton police responded to a report of a robbery with a gun at a home in the 11100 block of Southeast 184th Place in Renton.

Police were told the family arrived home, pulled into the garage and were taking their children out of the car when three armed men, with their guns drawn, forced the family into the house.

The family was told to keep their heads down and stay in the living room.

The men demanded to know where their money was and ransacked the house.

Officers were told several items were stolen and the men fled on foot about 20 minutes later.

The men were described as adult Black males, about 5 feet and 10 inches in height.

One of them was wearing a “Thrasher” T-shirt.

The victims were unable to provide any further descriptions.

Detectives don’t know if the men fled to a car nearby but think it’s likely they had one close to the house.

Detectives are asking neighbors near the home to check their exterior camera footage between the hours of 12:30 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. on Feb. 27 for any cars or people who may have been nearby.
