Belmont home invasion robbery leaves one injured 

Belmont police are investigating a home invasion robbery that occurred in the city Saturday evening.

The incident was reported at about 5:20 p.m. at a home in the 2700 block of Newlands Avenue where police received a report of a man outside the home who was bleeding from a head wound.

The robbery began when two suspects knocked on the door of the home. When a resident answered, the suspects forced their way into the home with handguns drawn, police said.

The two residents of the home, men in their 20s, were forced to hand over cash. A shot was fired into the ceiling by one of the suspects,
apparently to intimidate the victims.

At one point during the robbery, one of the victims was pistol whipped, causing a laceration to his head, according to police.

The suspects eventually left the home. More than one witness in the area saw a dark-colored, possibly dark green large sport utility vehicle
that resembled a late 1990s Chevrolet Suburban leaving the area. The vehicle was last seen driving south on Cipriani Boulevard, police said.

The victim who was pistol whipped was treated at a local hospital for his injuries and later released. The other victim was not injured,
according to police.

One of the suspects is described as a white or Hispanic male in his mid 20s who is about 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighs more than 200 pounds,
and has a scar on his upper lip. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans.

The other suspect is described as a white man in his mid 30s who is about 6 feet tall, weighs 250 pounds, and has a bald head with a goatee,
police said.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact Belmont police at (650) 595-7400.
