Men, Dog Recovering After Being Stabbed During Santa Rosa Home Invasion

Two men and a dog are recovering from being stabbed in Santa Rosa Wednesday morning when burglars attacked them, police said.

At 3:10 a.m., Santa Rosa police received a report of a home invasion robbery on Flower Avenue.

A 24-year-old man who lives in a detached dwelling in the home's backyard awoke to find two armed suspects wearing ski masks in his bedroom.

The pair had a knife and a gun and they assaulted the victim, stabbing him in the arm, police said.

The home's other occupant, a 57-year-old man, said that four suspects entered the house while he was watching television.

The suspects stabbed the second victim and may have pistol-whipped him, police said.

The suspects were also seen attacking a dog, which later appeared to have been stabbed.

It is not known whether anything was taken from the home, police said. Both men were taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The dog was taken to Sonoma County Animal Control.

The Sonoma County Alliance's "Take Back Our Community" program is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.

Anyone with information about this incident has been asked to call the Santa Rosa police at (707) 543-3590.
