Police are Investigating Third Home Invasion in Two Days

Lubbock police are now investigating the third home invasion in two days. The most recent one happened around 1:30 Thursday in West Lubbock. Investigators say the suspect kicked in the door and threatened the woman with a shotgun.

Neighbors are locking their doors and say they won't be able to sleep very easy until the suspect is caught.

The 27-year-old woman was lying in bed and home alone when the suspect kicked in her front door. Armed with a shotgun, he made her get on the floor while he searched for items to steal. Police reported that the suspect got a way with her jewelry.

The woman told police she recognized the man as a former neighbor. As far as what happened the neighbors NewsChannel 11 spoke to did not hear or see anything. When we told them what happened, they were shocked but more concerned for their safety.

"It concerns me because I have two small children. I am concerned about their safety because they play outside," said Tommy, a neighbor who lives across the street from the house invaded.

"It frightens me. I am scared," said Janet, another neighbor.

Police want us to stress the home invasions do not appear to be random occurrences or related. Police believe the suspects either knew their victims or at the very least targeted the residence that was broken into.
