ROSEVILLE (WCCO) – The Roseville Police Department needs help identifying people who they believe may be responsible for a violent group home invasion Thursday.

Police were dispatched at 9 a.m. to the 2800 block of Lexington Avenue on a report of an armed home invasion. When they arrived, investigators learned three black males, 18 to 20 years of age and approximately 5-feet-7 to 6-feet-tall, forced their way into a residential group home and demanded the occupants’ cash and narcotics.

During the robbery, the group home’s personal support advocate was pistol-whipped several times in the head, because the advocate couldn’t produce cash or narcotics.

For approximately 15 minutes, the suspects ransacked the home searching the home for cash and narcotics. Before leaving, they ripped phone lines from the wall, took all the cell phones and warned the occupants not to call the police. They ended up leaving with cash and credit card information of one of the vulnerable adults.

Later, four suspects were captured on video surveillance tape at a local convenience store making cash withdrawals on the stolen credit card.

The advocate was treated at the local hospital for minor injuries to his head and was released. There were no other injuries.

Anyone with information related to the incident is requested to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-84777 or online.
