Police investigating two home invasion robberies

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A Mountain View woman was beaten by a masked man during one of two home invasions that remained under investigation Tuesday.

The woman was assaulted during the most recent incident, which San Diego police said was reported shortly before 6:30 p.m. Monday. The suspect entered her home on Ocean View Boulevard near 35th Street, battered her and left, San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros said.

Police did not say if anything was taken.

The suspect was described as 6 feet tall and about 140 pounds, wearing black clothing and a Halloween mask.

The first home invasion of the day was reported in the 4100 block of Pepper Drive in the Azalea/Hollywood Park neighborhood shortly before 1 p.m., police said.

The victim told police he heard his doorbell ring and was confronted as he answered by the suspect, who was armed with a handgun, San Diego police Officer Dan Lasher said.

The suspect forced his way inside and began rifling through the victim's property.

The resident ran from the home and called for help, but the suspect fled before officers arrived, Lasher said.

It was not immediately clear what was taken.

That resident described the suspect as black and about 6 feet 6 wearing a gray mask.

Police have not said whether the two home invasions were related.
