Attempted Armed Robbery of Homeowners
Spokane Valley Major Crimes Detectives are investigating a reported attempted robbery at a Spokane Valley residence. During the incident, one suspect fired a shot into the floor of the home. One victim received what appeared to be minor injuries from being punched in the face.
On October 14, 2020, at approximately 12:50 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to the report of an attempted robbery at a residence located in the 900 block of S. Nina Circle.
The adult male and female victims stated two male suspects knocked on their door. The suspects, both wearing masks, inquired if a neighboring home was for rent. When the female victim was distracted, the suspects pushed her down and entered the residence. They confronted the male victim while one of the suspects kept the female on the ground.
One suspect displayed a handgun as they claimed the victims knew what they wanted and then demanded thousands of dollars. With the victims insisting they didn’t have that kind of money, the unarmed suspects hit the male victim in the face. The armed suspect fired a shot into the floor, and both threatened the victims' lives.
The female victim yelled the suspects had the wrong house and insisted they were looking for someone else.
The suspects fled the area in a white SUV, which was last seen northbound on Dishman Road.
The suspects were described as white males, 25-35 years of age. One suspect described as tall with a stocky build, approximately 6’00”- 6’02” and 280 pounds, and the other shorter with a medium build, estimated at 5’10”- 6’00” and 180 pounds.
