Written by 

According to a press rlease from the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office, Dated Feb. 12, 2012:
On Feb. 12, 2012, approximately 7:00 a.m. the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office was notified of an attempted Home Invasion Robbery which just occurred in the 100 block of Robinson Road, Orick. Deputies responded to the scene and met with two victims, a 26 year old female and a 35 year old  male, both who reside in the residence. The victims told the deputies they were asleep with their three year old child, when two adult male suspects wearing all black, both around 5’ 10” tall forced their way into their residence and bedroom. The suspects were armed with possibly a rifle or shot gun, and a handgun.

The suspects demanded money and the keys to the victims’ car, and then fired off two rounds from a weapon. The male victim was able to obtain a handgun during the robbery attempt, which he fired several times at the suspects. The suspects immediately fled in an unknown direction and did not appear to take anything from the home. The victims and child were uninjured during the robbery attempt, and do not believe the suspects were injured. The victims were unable to provide any further suspect information to the deputies. Deputies found spent shell casings and damage to the residence, including bullet holes consistent with the victims account as to what occurred.

Anyone with information for the Sheriffs Office regarding this case or criminal related activity is encouraged to call the Sheriffs Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriffs Office Crime Tip line 707-268-2539.
