Two men allegedly pryed open a window and broke into a home on Tuesday before ordering a woman there alone to hand over her valuables, according to Gilroy Police Department.
The burglary happened about 11:40 a.m. on the 300 block of Mantelli Drive. According to Gilroy Police, the victim heard someone knocking at the front door and ringing the door bell, and she did not answer or look to see who it was. A few moments later, the woman reportedly heard someone inside the home yelling, "police, police!"
The woman moved toward the voice and found two men on the second floor landing. According to police, one of the suspects "confronted the victim and demanded that she surrender all valuables in the home." He was armed with a "blunt instrument" and forced her into various rooms before leaving her by herself and telling her to wait until the two men left, according to police reports. The man also directed racial slurs at the woman.
The men appeared to have entered the home by prying open a rear window, according to police. Both men were reported to be 20-24 years old and African American. The first was reportedly about 6 feet tall and thin; the second was a few inches shorter. Both wore black hooded sweatshirts.
