Sioux Falls Police Search for Suspects in Home Invasion Robbery
Officer Sam Clemens says a resident told officers he, his girlfriend and a female relative had been at his home in the 5700 block of West Bream Court around 7:00 p.m. Friday when two men burst in, with at least one of them carrying a handgun.
“The male was hit in the head with some type of object, he wasn’t sure with what. He had a cut to his head that caused some bleeding. The relative was in a bedroom – one of the guys went in there, struck her with some object and ended up taking her purse that was with her,” explained Clemens.
Clemens says a search of the house for suspects turned up syringes and spoons with meth residue, so the male resident, 55-year-old Robert Watson, was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia.
Clemens says the robbers got away with the woman’s purse, although he says several computers and tablets were left in the front yard, possibly by the robbers as they ran.
The robbers were described as two African-American men wearing masks and dark-colored clothing.
They were in a gold-colored vehicle similar to a Chevy Malibu.
