SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash.--A burglar held a Spokane Valley homeowner at gunpoint on October 20.
A deputy responded to the 4200 block of N. Progress Road on a burglary call. The deputy contacted the victim who said he saw a white Ford Taurus parked in front of his house. The homeowner said he thought the driver was using his cell phone and did not think much about it.
When the homeowner came back from the store his neighbor told him he thought the male and female people in the vehicle may have entered his house. The victim went inside his home and saw his wife’s purse was missing.
The homeowner then drove around the block and found the Taurus he saw earlier in the night. He followed the car into a cul-d-sac until the male driver got out of his car and began walking towards the victim while pointing a gun at him.
The homeowner drove out of the cul-d-sac. He said the male was in his mid to late twenties, was white and had a tattoo of spikes on the left side of his neck.
The woman in the car was also white and in her mid to late twenties.
Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for anyone providing information leading to an arrest in this incident. Persons with information should call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-222-TIPS.
