A knock on the door turned terrifying after two armed men robbed and tied up four victims during a Pompano Beach home invasion.
The incident occurred at a apartment located on the 700 block of southwest 9th Street in Pompano Beach.
Miguel Luis Leyva, 26, and his wife, 23-year-old Ehilta Bael Borjas, were at the home of Vladimir Garcia, 37, and Yenisel Laguna, 21, receiving spiritual counseling on July 15th just after 6 p.m. During their session, they heard a knock at the door. Leyva opened the door and was immediately ambushed by two armed men. The robbers pushed their way in and forced everyone to the ground.
According to authorities, the armed robbers noticed the security camera and disconnected it. They then tied up the victims using wires and items found in the home. The masked men demanded money. When Garcia hesitated, they began to hit the victim several times in the face and back, police say.
The robbers fled with cash, jewelry, computer equipment and the keys to the victim’s car and home. Before they left, they threatened to come back and kill Garcia.
Detectives are currently searching for the two masked men who drove away in the white SUV captured by security cameras.
