UPDATE 8:06 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019 - Redding Police received a call around 4:30 p.m. from a man saying his wife had called him whispering someone was in their home on the 4000 block of Cedars Road and she was hiding with their children.

Officers say when they arrived on the scene, two men in hooded sweatshirts were observed walking away from the area. They were matching the description given by the victim of the two in her home.

Officers attempted to contact the suspects and did so following a short foot pursuit.

The suspects were identified as two men, ages 16 and 17.

The victim shared with officers the two suspects knocked on her door and forced their way in before demanding clothing and food. She says she was able to go to a different part of the house after she convinced the suspects to allow her to check on her children.

Officials say it was at this time she contacted her husband who then contacted law enforcement.

Both juveniles were booked into the Shasta County Juvenile Hall on charges of home invasion robbery, robbery and resisting arrest.
