Early morning home invasion in Lemon Grove

LEMON GROVE (CNS) – Four robbers wearing ski masks forced their way into
a home in Lemon Grove where marijuana was being grown indoors early Wednesday,
injuring at least one person, authorities said.

The home invasion in the 8000 block of Blossom Lane, near Washington
Street, was reported at 1:48 a.m., according to San Diego County sheriff's Lt.
Rich Williams.

One victim ran in nothing but his underwear to a neighbor's house for
help and the neighbor called 911, he said, noting when deputies arrived they
found he and another victim had run from the home.

Deputies initially thought the victims might have been the suspects but
determined the suspects were gone, according to Williams.

The victim who ran to a neighbor's house later told investigators that
several people inside the home were robbed at gunpoint, sheriff's Sgt. Matt
Cook said. The exact loss was not reported but Cook said while clearing the
residence, deputies located an indoor marijuana grow and an unknown quantity of
dried marijuana.

The victim who ran to a neighbor's house suffered a non-life threatening
head injury and was taken to a hospital, while the other known victim was
uninjured, Williams said.
