Suspects Sought in Home Invasion

Shortly before 1:00 pm today, Southlake officers were dispatched to the 1400 block of Thetford Court in reference to a home invasion.

The resident, who was home at the time, stated that a male approached her front door and advised he was looking for his dog.  When the victim opened the door, the male forced his way inside the residence and contacted a second suspect via walkie-talkie.  The suspects, who were both armed with firearms, restrained the victim inside the home and demanded money and other valuables.  When the resident’s adult son returned home, the suspects fled the scene in a black newer model GMC SUV.

Both suspects were described as “well-dressed”:

Suspect #1 is a white male in his early 30’s, around 6’0″ tall and heavyset, wearing a Cubs baseball cap with black / green embroidery, thin brown wireframe glasses, a long-sleeved button-down dress shirt, dark pants and dark dress shoes.

Suspect #2 is a white male in his early 20’s around 5’9″ tall and slender build, clean cut with his hair slicked back, wearing a white long-sleeved starched dress shirt and black slacks.  In addition, he was possibly wearing either a bandana or mask around his neck at the time of the offense.

If you have any information about this case or the suspects involved, please contact Southlake Police Detective J. Ellis at or at (817) 748-8123.
