Two suspects have been arrested following a residential burglary of an occupied residence in the 2600 block of North Parish Place.
On Aug. 17, at 10:25 a.m., the Burbank Police Department responded to the residence, where an individual inside had called the police and reported they observed four suspects break the rear sliding glass door and enter the home. The occupants locked themselves in the bathroom to call 911 and could still hear the suspects inside the home.
Another resident arrived home shortly after, and the suspects fled into the surrounding residential neighborhood. Neither of the home’s occupants were harmed.
One of the victims provided officers with a description of the suspects, their last known location and surveillance video of the incident.
A perimeter was established around the area, and with the assistance of the Glendale Police Department K9 Unit and a Pasadena Police Department helicopter, officers conducted a search of the properties within the perimeter and found two suspects hiding in the rear yard of an adjacent property. One suspect refused to comply with officers’ commands and was ultimately bitten by a police K9 during the apprehension. The second suspect was taken into custody without incident.
The arrested suspects were have been identified as a 31-year-old man from Los Angeles and a 32-year-old from Palmdale. Both were booked for robbery and burglary, both felonies and are due to appear in court today, Aug. 19. They are being held in lieu of a $150,000 bond. Formal charges are pending review by the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
Investigators believe there are three additional suspects who were involved in this crime and are outstanding.
This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to contact BPD’s Investigations Division at (818) 238-3210.
