Tacoma police are looking for suspects in the latest of seven armed robberies targeting Asian families, said police spokesman Mark Fulghum.
In the most recent incident, officers responded Friday to a home in the 9000 block of South K Street, where four people were tied up inside their home as it was ransacked from about 4 to 6 p.m., Fulghum said.
The youngest victim was 8 years old, and several of the family members sustained minor injuries, Fulghum said.
The robbery fits the profile of six others that have occurred since December, and police believe they are related, Fulghum said.
He said two male suspects – armed with handguns – bind the family as they communicate with a third female suspect via walkie-talkies. They then proceed to ransack the houses, taking valuables such as money and jewelry.
In Friday’s robbery, the male robbers wore black clothing and blue bandannas that obscured their faces, Fulghum said.
Anyone with information about these robberies is asked to call Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959.
