Police Arrest Second Suspect in SJ Home Invasion Robbery

San Jose police on Thursday arrested a 16-year-old suspect in connection with a home invasion robbery that took place May 8 in the Evergreen neighborhood.

The arrest comes a day after police arrested a 17-year-old suspect in connection to the same crime.

The 16-year-old suspect is being interviewed by detectives and will be booked into the Santa Clara Juvenile Hall on suspicion of home invasion robbery.

On Wednesday, the 17-year-old suspect turned himself into the San Jose Police Department headquarters and was questioned by detectives before being booked into juvenile hall, SJPD spokesperson Officer Albert Morales said

The burglary at Shiloh Place, a normally quiet area with multi-million dollar homes, was caught on surveillance video. Footage from the surveillance video shows two suspects peeking into the home to see if anyone is inside. Once the suspects get inside the home they grab knives from the kitchen, disconnect the phone line and start searching the house for valuables.

A video shows family members hiding inside the home while the two armed men ransacked it. The two men also point at the bedroom when they realize people are home. The pair then work to get inside the room by kicking the door and trying to push their way inside.

Police said there have been more than a dozen burglaries in the Evergreen area in the past month.

Detectives are continuing to to conduct follow up investigations to determine if anyone else was involved in the crime.
