Moreno Valley police officers responded to an attempted break in by four men at 9:27 p.m. on Oct. 1 at an elderly woman’s residence in the 22000 block of Scotia Lane in Moreno Valley, a Sheriff’s official reported.

Police arrested Stevie Crumb, 22, Lavonte Crumb, 20, Marian Parker, 20, and Alfonzo Butler, 21, for attempted home invasion robbery and conspiracy to commit a crime, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s report.

The 70-year-old woman informed police that the four men broke into her house with only one wielding a handgun. She attempted to scare the men off by telling them the police were on their way but they persisted while pointing the gun at her. Moreno Valley police officers arrived at this time and the invaders fled from the residence, according to Sgt. Aaron Kent.

After setting up a perimeter, the police were able to find the men hiding in the backyards of the surrounding area. The handgun was found discarded in a nearby yard. The victim was able to identify the handgun as the one she was threatened with.

The suspects were booked into the Riverside County Jail with a one million dollar bail due to the violence committed against an elderly person, according to Kent.

The Moreno Valley Police Department is asking anyone with additional information about this case to contact Dep. Grotefend at 951-486-6816 with the Special Enforcement Team.
