Antioch police arrest two thieves, one shot by homeowner during robbery, Wednesday afternoon

By Lt. Aguinaga, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau

On Wednesday, December 10, 2014 at 12:40 p.m. a 53-year-old male was home alone, in the 4000 block of Via Dora Drive, working in his home office. His wife, who had just left the home, was notified of a motion alert on her phone from their home alarm system. This alarm was for the back of the house, downstairs from the home office. She called her husband who armed himself and went to check on the motion alert. The homeowner found two people inside his home, going through his belongings. He confronted the two subjects at gunpoint, and fearing for his life, fired several rounds from his firearm.

The two subjects fled from his house, still carrying some of his property. A few minutes later the subjects showed up at a local hospital, one of them suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. At the time of this writing it appears this suspect’s injuries are not life threatening.

Those arrested are:

1) 21 year old male; Vallejo and SF resident with a felony criminal history.

2) 19 year old female; Vallejo and SF resident.

The homeowner (victim) was not injured, although he is obviously quite shaken up by the incident. He is fully cooperative with the police investigation.

This information is preliminary as the investigation is still unfolding. No further information will be released at this time.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call the Investigations Bureau with the Antioch Police Department at (925) 779-6926. You may also text a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using key word ANTIOCH.

    I’m happy that the homeowner was not injured. It could have been a lot worse. I’m glad he had a gun to protect himself.

  2. Karl dietzel says:

    Maybe the apd web side could have a “most wanted” page?

    It looks like the home owner needs to go to the range, and do some practicing .They both should have been carried out ,”in a bag”.
    Buts that’s just my opinion.
    anyway good for him .
