Culprits in skull masks behind Pasadena takeover robbery


By Ruby Gonzales, November 1, 2013

PASADENA -Two men wearing what police described as “skeleton masks” forced their way inside a home on Halloween night, snatched a necklace off a senior and ransacked a room.

Pasadena police said the elderly residents weren’t injured. Officers found the necklace nearby.

The home invasion robbery happened at around 8 p.m. in the 400 block of Allendale Road.

There was a knock on the door. Thinking it was a trick-or-treater, the resident opened the door, according Pasadena Police Lt. Vasken Gourdikian.

Two armed men wearing masks and gloves barged into the residence.

Gourdikian said the men demanded cash and jewelry from the couple, rummaged through a bedroom and fled. They also grabbed a necklace the woman was wearing.

The suspects were last seen running toward Los Robles Avenue.

One of the robbers was short while the other was tall. Detailed descriptions of the suspects weren’t available Thursday night.
