A Raytown couple was startled at about 9:30 this morning when the door of their home in the 8500 block of Everett burst open and two armed men charged inside. One of the suspects pointed a rifle and the other was armed with a handgun. They demanded that the couple tell them where to find “Robert” and their money. The couple, neither being Robert, were held at gunpoint while one of the suspects briefly searched the residence. When the suspects decided to flee before the police arrived, one homeowner retrieved a pistol and fired shots at them as they left the driveway in a white SUV. The suspect vehicle was last seen by neighbors going west on 85th St. It is not known if either of the suspects was injured. The homeowners reported no injuries.
Police are looking for two black men of about twenty five years of age, armed with a rifle and handgun, driving a white SUV. The first man is about 5’8” to 5’9” tall and 150 lbs., with a neatly trimmed mustache, a short afro-style haircut, a medium to dark complexion and a round face, wearing a ball cap, light colored shirt and dark pants. The second man was lighter complected and described as having “bug-eyes.” He was about 6’0” tall and 165 lbs. with hair cut in a style similar to dreadlocks about 3” long. He was dressed in dark clothing and light colored shoes.
