Investigators on Wednesday were searching for four men involved in a violent home-invasion robbery that left three people injured in Palmdale the night before.
Deputies received a 911 call reporting an armed robbery in the 38200 block of Meadow Lane at about 9:47 p.m. Tuesday, said Lt. Brian Dunn of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Someone had knocked on the door of the home and then used a handgun to strike a woman after she opened it, Dunn said. The woman was later taken to a local hospital in stable condition.
The armed intruder then entered the home and struck two more people, both men, in the face, Dunn said.
One of the men, who has mobility issues, was struck with the handgun while he was on the couch, according to Dunn. He was also hospitalized in stable condition following the attack.
The second man had minor injuries and refused to go to the hospital, according to Dunn.
Two more men entered the home and helped take cash, a laptop, a gold chain, bottles of alcohol, and clothing and shoes, Dunn said.
The three men ran out of the house and drove off with a fourth man waiting in a newer model purple or blue SUV.
Two other people, a man and a woman, were inside the home at the time of the robbery but were uninjured, according to Dunn.
