LEMON GROVE (CNS) - Four robbers wearing ski masks forced their way into a home in Lemon Grove where marijuana was being grown indoors early Wednesday, injuring at least one person, authorities said.
The home invasion in the 8000 block of Blossom Lane, near Washington Street, was reported at 1:48 a.m., according to San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Rich Williams.
One victim ran in nothing but his underwear to a neighbor's house for help and the neighbor called 911, he said, noting when deputies arrived they found he and another victim had run from the home.
Deputies initially thought the victims might have been the suspects but determined the suspects were gone, according to Williams.
The victim who ran to a neighbor's house later told investigators that several people inside the home were robbed at gunpoint, sheriff's Sgt. Matt Cook said. The exact loss was not reported but Cook said while clearing the residence, deputies located an indoor marijuana grow and an unknown quantity of dried marijuana.
The victim who ran to a neighbor's house suffered a non-life threatening head injury and was taken to a hospital, while the other known victim was uninjured, Williams said.
