Bandits invaded a home in Barrio Dent about 11 p.m. Sunday. A resident in Desamparados suffered the same fate four hours later.
The home in Barrio Dent, San Pedro, was not far from the Embassy of Colombia where there is a 24-hour police presence. The Judicial Investigating Organization said that the occupants heard a loud noise as masked men barged in through a door. There were at least four persons, the occupants told investigators.
One of the intruders hit the women of the house on the head and took a chain she was wearing. The bandits also took other jewelry and valuables.
