Police are investigating an unusual home invasion that happened in Mesa on Tuesday night.
Mesa police said the residents let a man into their home to charge his phone. Soon after, the suspect, holding a gun, charged through the front door and threatened to shoot anyone who didn't listen to him.
The suspect then tried removing a television in the home before leaving with just a video game console.
After the suspect left, the victims asked to use the phone of the man who was charging it so they could call 911, but he told them he had to leave and ran away. Mesa police said they believe that man is a possible accomplice in the robbery.
The robbery suspect is described as an African American, between the age of 25 and 28, and 6' tall, with a muscular build. He was wearing red athletic shorts and a black and red cap.
The possible accomplice is African American, bald and 6' tall with a muscular build.
