Seniors attacked and robbed, 2 arrested in Oakland home invasion

OAKLAND (KTVU) -- Police have arrested two suspects in a violent home invasion and robbery that occurred overnight Tuesday in the Oakland hills in which two elderly male residents were hurt.

Authorities have not identified the suspects accused of the attack at the home in the 4600 block of Sequoyah Road. Police said a man in his 70s suffered moderate injuries and has been treated and released from a local hospital. Another man in his 80s suffered minor injuries, police said.

Police were called to the home around 2:30 a.m. Two of the suspects were taken into custody shortly after 4 a.m. and police said officers were able to make a quick arrest because of input from community residents. Police said multiple suspects were being sought in connection with the incident.

A gold/champagne colored 2001 Cadillac sedan, with a California license plate of 4TLA277, was taken during the incident and has now been recovered, police said. 

Police said multiple suspects forced their way into the home during the attack. It was not clear if the suspects knew the victims.

Police said the suspects were arrested about two hours later in the area of Mountain Boulevard and Sequoyah Road. The suspects were found in a vehicle that was involved in a carjacking Monday afternoon in Oakland, police said. 

Items taken during the overnight home invasion were found in the suspects' vehicle along with a replica firearm, police said.
