Gunman Walks Through Front Door & Robs Lubbock Couple

For the second night in a row, a Lubbock homeowner came face-to-face with a thief and this time the man was armed.

The incident happened in the 4900 Block of 59th Street, just before 7pm Friday evening. A couple was inside when the gunman walked in and demanded cash. Once the gunman got what he wanted, he forced the couple into a room and fled.

Thursday, in northwest Lubbock, a homeowner caught two burglars inside her home. They parked their car inside her garage, and were taken by surprise when she came home. Police say they pushed her out of her car and then made a getaway in an older model blue car.

If you have any information that could help police solve either of these cases, you're asked to call Crime Line at 741-1000.
