By From page A8 | January 08, 2014

VACAVILLE — Two men burst into a home on Chelsea Court on Tuesday morning, robbing the residents at gunpoint, police said.

According to a news release, a call came in just after 8 a.m., with the victim reporting a robbery in her home – the third armed robbery in three days in Vacaville.

Officers arrived and began an investigation.

Police said the victim reported two male suspects armed with handguns kicked in the front door of the home.

The victim and her juvenile son were home at the time of the robbery, police said.

While the victims were held at gunpoint, the suspects ransacked the house, collecting valuables, including firearms and jewelry.

The suspects are described as a black man, 20 to 30 years old, unshaven with a large build and dark clothing. The other is described as a male of unknown age and unknown race with dark clothing.

Police said the suspects fled in a silver vehicle.

Detectives from the Investigative Services Section arrived and began working the case.

A trio of suspects robbed a U-Haul Center on Monte Vista Avenue Sunday, and there was another robbery Monday night, about which police have not released any details.

The three crimes do not appear to be related, the release states.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 449-5200 or Detective Nate Benevides 469-4724.
