Man assaulted in South Park home robbery

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A 40-year-old man was assaulted and nearly kidnapped during a home invasion last night in South Park. The man and his girlfriend were asleep in their home when three men forced their way in and stole several items, police said today.

The suspects entered the home in the 2200 block of 30th Street at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, demanded the man’s car keys and began to struggle with the victim when he refused to hand them over. The suspects were armed and assaulted the victim, who eventually escaped and called police. The suspects “took several electronic items from the victim’s home and attempted to kidnap the victim,” according to the San Diego Police Department. They reportedly escaped in a dark SUV. They were wearing dark clothing and gloves, with their heads and faces partially covered.

San Diego Police Department robbery detectives are investigating the incident. Anyone with information about the attempted robbery is asked to call police at 619-531-2204, or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
