Police looking for suspect in La Jolla home invasion robbery

LA JOLLA (CNS) – San Diego police were on the lookout Thursday for a gunman
who stole jewelry and fur coats during a home invasion robbery in La Jolla
and fired off three rifle shots as he fled, grazing a 76-year-old man in the
face.

A real estate agent who had shown the house in the 7400 block of
Hillside Drive to a potential buyer was locking up around 6:15 p.m. Wednesday
when the robber demanded the female agent go back inside and show him where the
jewelry was, San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.

The woman said she was only the real estate agent and didn't know where
the jewelry was, so he ransacked the house, told the real estate agent to stay
inside, and left, Stafford said.

As he walked outside, he ran into the 76-year-old owner who was just
returning. The robber went to his car, got a long rifle and pointed it at the
home owner, fired two rounds into the ground, then a third round that grazed
the victim's face, Stafford said.

The owner was taken to a trauma center with a non-life-threatening
gunshot wound to the face, Stafford said.

The suspect was described as being in his late 30s, having blond hair
and wearing glasses. He drove a black Porsche.
