At approximately 10:10 p.m. Fremont Police responded to a Home Invasion Robbery that had just occurred on the 4300 block of Peregrine Way.

This is the second home invasion robbery reported in the northern part of Fremont this week. The first was on Tuesday, May 28th on the 3100 block of Mountain Drive at approximately 10 p.m. Detectives believe that it's likely the two cases are related due to a number of similar factors, including the method of entry, time of occurrence and victim profile. In both cases three suspects entered the home by using force to enter the side garage door. They then preceded into the home though the garage door and began a search, ultimately ending up in the master bedroom where the victims were asleep in bed. Due to the time of night, it was dark and the victims were unable to provide police with a good description of the three men. The victims at both homes were elderly Asian adults.
