Robbers break into Arcadia home of Chinese international students

Five men broke into an Arcadia home of five Chinese international students just before midnight on June 13World Journal (世界日报) reports. Armed with guns, the men entered the home on Norman and Sixth streets at 11:44 p.m., blindfolding two of the residents and tying their hands before carrying away jewelry, cash, electronics, passports, and a car key, according to Arcadia police officer Tom LeVeque. The three remaining residents came home as the robbers were ransacking the house. 

The victims did not know the thieves, LeVeque told World Journal, and they could not describe the robbers' physical traits since they were blindfolded. According to a neighbor, the street was peaceful the night of the incident and he did not hear anything next door. 

The five residents moved out of the home on Saturday, according to World Journal.

  1. This is very sad and reflects the LOW-LIVES of criminal opportunitists who scope the areas for a quick buck. Hope these criminals get caught along with future ones should these things happen again.

    People need to know their neighborhoods and look out for each other…
