Lake Charles – On November 16 the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a home on Alma Rd in Lake Charles in reference to a 911 hang up call. Upon deputies’ arrival they spoke to the homeowner and two of his friends who told them approximately five men with bandanas covering their faces entered the residence with firearms. One man had an AK-47 and the others had handguns. They demanded money from the homeowner and his two friends. The men took several electronic devices including TV’s and gaming consoles before leaving the scene in two trucks.
