SAN DIEGO, California — Two men barge into an Ocean Beach residence, pushing a 69-year-old woman to the ground and ransacking her dwelling before leaving empty-handed, police said Friday.
The home-invasion robbery attempt happened at about 11:20 p.m. Thursday in the 4900 block of West Point Loma Boulevard when the would-be robbers knocked on the victim’s front door, San Diego police Officer Robert Heims said. The woman started to open the door when the suspects pushed their way through, knocking her to the ground.
Police noted the men went directly to the woman’s medicine cabinet in her bathroom but left after not finding anything. The men — who were not armed — are believed to have been searching for prescription drugs.
There were no injuries to the woman.
Both suspects were described as thin, roughly 6-foot tall black men in their early 20s with short hair and wearing black sweat suits. The incident is being investigated by robbery detectives.
