At least three individuals have been connected and charged with their involvement with a push-in robbery in Grass Valley back in December. However, the investigation into the incident is still ongoing. During a snow storm on December 6th a group of three young males pushed into a 70 year old man’s house after pretending to need to use his phone to call a friend for ride.
According to the victim, as he was dialing the phone one male stuck him on the side of his head with what he thought was a rock.

At that point they ransacked portions of the house taking a number of items and then used the victim’s truck to get away.
An initial arrest of a juvenile occurred within a week of the event and since then Grass valley Police have been investigating additional leads and suspects.
