SAN DIEGO — Three men were arrested Sunday on suspicion of robbing a Pacific Beach man at gunpoint in his home, police said.
The robbery was reported at 9:50 p.m. on the 4100 block of Jewell Street, San Diego Police Officer John Buttle said. Police say the 41-year-old victim was home alone when he opened his door and two suspects pushed inside.
For an unknown amount of time, the victim was held at gunpoint, at one point he felt a gun on his back, while the other suspect grabbed a kitchen knife and searched the home, Buttle said.
During their search, the suspects took personal belongings, cash and the victim’s phone before fleeing the area.
A witness reportedly saw the suspects back into a parking lot before entering the home and remarked it was “strange,” according to Buttle. The same witness later saw the men walking and gave officers their description and direction of travel.
Her vehicle was spotted some time later on northbound Interstate 5 and then stopped at Palomar Airport Road. During that time, three men aged between 30 and 40 were taken into custody.
No further information about the suspects was released, but the victim’s belongings were seized.
The robbery is still under investigation.
Those wishing to share information with investigators were asked to call the San Diego Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
