Suspects In Custody After Lincoln Heights Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN HEIGHTS (CNS) - Four suspects are in custody after a siege-like home invasion that lasted 2 1/2 hours in Lincoln Heights today.

The four suspects, armed with handguns, entered the single-family house, on the 2600 block of Alta Street, soon after 2 a.m. said Los Angeles police Capt. Martin Baeza.

One of the suspects was armed with a shotgun, according to LAPD Lt. Andy Neiman.

A dispatcher at the Hollenbeck Community Police Station said a 911 call came into the station from the address at 2:15 a.m. Baeza said in a broadcast interview that one of the suspects gave himself up when police arrived, but the remaining suspects stayed in the house.

He described the residents in the house as hostages.

In a later interview on ABC7, Neiman said three of the suspects fled the residence immediately, but a fourth remained on the scene.

Residents of surrounding houses were evacuated during the stand-off, and a SWAT unit was also in attendance, Baeza said.

The last of the four suspects was eventually found hiding in the back yard of the residence, he said.

None of the residents in the house was harmed, Baeza said. It was not yet known what material the suspects were looking for, he said.

An ABC7 report said all of the suspects were male.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
