Sketches of Broomfield burglary suspects who bound mother in a closet with her kids

BROOMFIELD, Colo. - Broomfield Police are sharing sketches of two burglary suspects who bound a mother in a closet with her children last week. Police also released a surveillance photo of an SUV the suspects may have used.

On March 26, the mother and her children returned home and found two black men inside their home along Red Deer Trail. Although no weapons were seen and no one was injured, police say the men took the woman and her children upstairs to the closet.

While the family was enclosed in the closet, police said the suspects got away with a large number of the family's belongings. 7NEWS learned the victim's cell phone was among the stolen items and police tracked it 2 miles to the south, where it was discarded and found by someone else.

Police said the suspects were both black men, wearing dark-colored sweatshirts, dark pants and heavy-fabric black gloves. One is described as having a thin build with sagging pants and a scar over one eye; the other suspect is described as having a stocky build and a goatee.

A surveillance photograph shows a light-colored crossover vehicle or SUV that police say was seen fleeing the scene of the burglary.

Anyone who has seen the suspects or the vehicle is asked to call Broomfield Police Detective Dale Hammell at 303-464-5733.
