A mother, father and 5-year-old victimized in a morning home invasion, Miami-Dade cops say
A home invasion Monday morning left a family in West Miami-Dade with injuries and a ransacked home as police searched for two armed suspects.
Shortly after 8 a.m. near Southwest 130th Avenue and 30th Street, a woman and her 5-year-old left their home when two masked armed men dropped out of school, Miami-Dade Det.Alvaro Zabaleta told media present. After forcing the mother and child back inside, the robbers tied the 34-year-old mother and her 53-year-old husband who was in the house together, Zabaleta said.
"Fortunately, they didn't touch the 5-year-old," said Zabaleta. “They kept her with her mother. The father was attacked. He was beaten at least once. He suffered minor injuries. They kept demanding personal property. "
The robbers left the house with stolen goods in the family's white Land Rover Discovery 2019. Monday evening it was not clear what exactly the robbers were taking.
The car was found abandoned two blocks from the house, Zabaleta said. The police do not have a detailed description of the two robbers.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
