Plum police are looking for two men they say robbed a Holiday Park family.

Chief Jeffrey Armstrong said the men entered the Rainier Drive home through the front door that was unlocked shortly after midnight on Aug. 10. One of the suspects brandished a black and silver firearm, the chief said.

The men took a woman upstairs to her teen son's bedroom and demanded marijuana and cash, Armstrong said. Armstrong said the son told police he was struck in the back of the head with the suspect's gun. He did not require medical treatment.

The suspects took money and electronics and fled on foot, Armstrong said.

Police were able to view video footage of the suspects in the downstairs portion of the home because the family has security cameras that monitor the interior of the home, Armstrong said.

The suspect who carried the gun is described as a dark-skinned black male, 6 feet tall and weighing 180 to 200 pounds. He was wearing a dark-colored shirt and light-colored pants, the chief said.

The second suspect is a light-skinned black male who wore gloves and a baseball cap.

Police do not think the robbery was a random act.

“We have every reason to believe the victims and the suspects are connected,” Armstrong said.
