Crime Trackers: Victim of home invasion speaks out

Posted: Updated:

Tucson police said a hand grenade and a suspicious device found across the street at a Walgreens all point back to a home invasion.

Now, a cell phone video has surfaced that shows the victims of the home invasion beating up on one of the suspects.

The fight broke out in front of a grocery store on Prince Road, near Flowing Wells. The victims claimed they chased one of the suspects there. They did not want to be identified.

“We're beating up the bad guy, the guy that got left behind," said the home invasion victim.

A cell phone video showed the victim’s friend attacking the suspect. The sister, also a victim, is seen kicking the suspect. The homeowner steps in and sees the suspect had a gun.

“He was reaching out for it in his waist, so we bailed because we didn't want a shoot out to happen or nothing like that,” said the victim.

Tucson police said there was a shot fired at that location. However, they do not know who fired the shot. Someone then threw a hand grenade.

The man who shot the cell phone video told sister-station Telemundo people got back into the car, and then someone threw out a hand grenade onto the street. 

The home invasion victim showed News 4 Tucson the injuries he sustained from one of the six men who broke into his house.

“I got pistol whipped and I had to get three stitches on my head,” he said.

He said the living nightmare started at 10 a.m., when the men kicked in the door, screaming out “DEA, DEA, DEA, everybody on the ground.”

He said they went through his house, taking valuable items.

News 4 Tucson asked the homeowner why they targeted his house and if he was involved in illegal activity. He responded, “No ma’am, they just pick on a place that you know they see has nice tv's and nice stuff.”

Tucson police are trying to sort out how the suspicious package found at the Walgreen's, the grenade, and the home invasion connect. They have made no arrests.

If you have information, you are urged to call 911 or if you want to remain anonymous call 88-CRIME.
