4 suspects break into Valley grandmother's home, all caught on surveillance video

PHOENIX - A terrifying home invasion has one Valley family spooked, and it was all caught on surveillance video. Now they're hoping someone can identify the suspects and put them behind bars.

A Valley family was in the process of moving their 93-year-old grandmother out of her home near 24th Street and Indian School Road in Phoenix, and finished packing several boxes Friday morning.

Four young suspects were caught on video rummaging through the home just hours later that day.

Kimberly, the woman's granddaughter, spoke to ABC15. She asked that we not use her name nor her grandmother's picture out of fear of retaliation.

The grandmother's home is equipped with video cameras that are used to monitor her safety, and are triggered when they detect movement.

The cameras show what appear to be four teenage boys entering through the back door. One of the suspects apparently tossed a brick through a window. The suspects can then be seen rummaging through the house.

One of them points a gun into the grandmother's bedroom before entering; a situation Kimberly can't imagine her grandmother experiencing.

"If somebody would've been here, if my grandmother would've been here, God forbid what would've happened," said Kimberly. "We don't want to see this happen to anyone else going forward."

The suspects did take an iPad, an iPod docking station and a laptop, according to Kimberly. They also took a few family heirlooms.

The family isn't concerned with getting the items back; they just want the suspects to be identified and brought into police custody.

If anyone recognized the suspects, please contact Phoenix police.
