Elderly couple victimized in Stockton home invasion

STOCKTON, CA - Stockton police are looking for two men who broke into a home Sunday afternoon while the elderly residents were there.

The men stole jewelry and money while ransacking the house.  One of them kept a gun pointed at the 93-year-old woman during the incident.

"She was still lying in bed, and he was pointing the gun.  She was trembling," said the daughter of the victims who was at work at the time.  "I couldn't forgive myself if something happened, if they were killed," said the woman who didn't want to provide her name.

The men broke into the home through a back window, which was broken by a thrown rock.  The rock was thrown so hard it marked up a wall about 30 feet beyond the window.

Police said the men were wearing masks and gloves, and the victims couldn't be certain of their race.

The home invasion was in northeast Stockton.
