Aug. 3, 2015 - Detectives are investigating a home invasion robbery and carjacking in the 1300 block of Campus Avenue Saturday night.
The 20-year-old female victim was confronted at her home shortly before 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 1, by a knife-wielding man who demanded her car keys. After giving the robber her keys, the victim struggled with the man before escaping the home and running to a neighbor’s residence for help.
The robber escaped in the victim’s gray Volkswagen Jetta, license plate number 6KZM222, heading west on Campus Avenue. Police units were on scene within one minute of the 911 call but were unable to locate the vehicle.
No injuries were reported, but three dogs were rescued when Redlands Firefighters responded to a structure fire in the 800 block of Pacific Street Friday morning.
Firefighters responded to the blaze in the single-story, single-family home at about 11:15 a.m. Friday, July 31, and found the home well involved in flame. Unsure whether anyone was home at the time, firefighters made entry and rescued three dogs. None of the residents were home.
