ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Deputies want to find two men suspected of breaking into a home in Adams County Sunday morning. They say one person was hit with a hammer and taken to North Suburban Medical Center.
Authorities say the home invasion happened on Ivywood Street near Brighton Road and 80th Avenue.
They describe the suspects as one man standing 6′ tall, weighing around 240 lbs, wearing a mask and a red shirt. The second man is described as Hispanic and in his 20s.
Loretta Rivera has been in the neighborhood many years and has never seen anything like this before.
“This is a total shock, total shock, you don’t hear shots before seven in the morning,” she said.
The retired high school teacher let her cat out when she said she heard what sounded like a series of gun shots.
“Then I saw this truck whiz by and I thought, ‘Oh my goodness, I hope the boys didn’t get hurt and one’s taking the other to the hospital,’ but it wasn’t that at all.”
She says the house where the incident took place is home to a kind, hardworking family, just like all of the families on the block.
“We’re going to go on living, we’re not going to give up our neighborhood to any thug or thugs or anybody. You come to our neighborhood, come in peace because that’s how we live.”
The suspects left in the victim’s grey 2005 Porsche Cayenne.
Detectives are interviews several witnesses. Further details have not been released.
