Teens plead guilty to home invasion charges

CHULA VISTA (CNS) – An 18-year-old man who broke into a Chula Vista home
along with two 17-year-old boys as a teenage girl hid in a closet pleaded
guilty Tuesday to multiple charges, including residential burglary and receiving
stolen property.

Robin Sadik, who also admitted an auto theft charge and a misdemeanor
count of giving false information to a peace officer, will be sentenced Sept. 9
by South Bay Judge Garry Haehnle.

Sadik, of El Cajon, admitted guilt on the day his preliminary hearing
was to take place.

Two 17-year-old boys arrested after the break-in were prosecuted in
Juvenile Court, said Deputy District Attorney Carolyn Matzger.

Chula Vista police said the teenage girl was home alone on Avenida
Altamira shortly before 1 p.m. March 19 when she heard a knock at the front
door and saw a stranger opening a window. She called 911 as she heard people
entering the home and hid in an upstairs closet.

“Clearly frightened but remarkably composed, the caller remained on the
phone with a dispatcher, providing additional information while the
(burglars) were still inside and while officers were responding,” Chula Vista
police Capt. Gary Wedge said earlier.

He said Sadik and the two boys were loading filched property into a
nearby vehicle when police arrived minutes later. The girl identified the
stolen items, and the three suspects were arrested.
