Armed robbers hit apartments, condos, mobile homes

Michael Buettner

Residents of the full gamut of multifamily housing in the county – apartments, condo complexes and mobile home parks – have found themselves facing armed robbers recently:

• A resident of the 6100 block of Kim Court in the Rollingwood Estates Apartments was abducted, robbed and assaulted by an unspecified number of known suspects around 10 p.m. on Dec. 31. Jewelry was reported stolen.

• A resident getting out of his car around 4:45 p.m. on Jan. 2 in the 700 block of South Hyannis Drive in the Sturbridge Village condo complex was approached by two armed, masked suspects. One suspect placed his gun in the resident’s mouth while the other searched his car. The suspects took cash and an electronic device from the resident’s car and pockets, then left on foot.

• A resident was robbed of cash by a suspect carrying a firearm in the 2400 block of Marina Drive in the Falling Creek Apartments around 5:15 p.m. on Jan. 2.

• An unspecified number of suspects (one of them known to the residents) carrying firearms entered a mobile home in the 900 block of Cliffside Drive in Harbour East Village around 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 5. The suspects threatened the residents, then left by the back door carrying cash, consumable goods, electronic devices and miscellaneous items.
