Police Wednesday were investigating an attempted home invasion robbery in Covina.
Two men, both wearing hoodies and with bandanas covering their faces, approached a home in the 1500 block of East Algrove Street about 9:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Covina Police Department.
“One of the men was armed with a chrome revolver while the other held brass knuckles in his right fist and a tire iron in his left hand,” according to a police statement. “The men knocked on the door and were captured by a video doorbell. The resident inside saw the armed men and called the police. The men continued knocking for approximately a minute before fleeing to a white panel van.”
Police said the van was last seen heading east toward Starglen Drive.
Anyone with information about the suspects was urged to contact investigating Detective Tim Statler at (626) 384-5622 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
