Felony Stupid': Armed Home Invasion Ends After Pair of Suspects Ask Victim for Ridiculous Favor

"They came out, still tied up, thinking that we were going to believe they were victims also."

In an odd turn of events, a pair of home invasion suspects allegedly demanded their victim perform one bizarre act Saturday — tie them up and then identify them to Los Angeles police as victims.

Police say the bizarre scene unfolded after four suspects, armed with a shotgun and three handguns, allegedly entered a resident's home just before 3 a.m., according to the Los Angeles Times. However, the resident spotted the alleged intruders on a home surveillance system and dialed 911.

When authorities arrived, one suspect was reportedly seen fleeing the scene and quickly nabbed by officers. Another ran and hid, leaving two of the alleged intruders inside the home.

That's when the pair of suspects allegedly demanded the victim tie them up and also identify them to police as victims of the crime they were actually allegedly committing.

The resident obliged, tied them up, then walked out and told police what happened as the pair of suspects remained helplessly tied up inside.

Police did not immediately enter the residence and eventually the suspects "got tired of waiting" and walked outside, according to authorities.

"They came out, still tied up, thinking that we were going to believe they were victims also," officer Norma Eisenman said. "That’s what you call felony stupid."

The fourth was apprehended by officers after being caught hiding in the backyard. No injuries were reported in the bizarre home invasion and all suspects were successfully captured by police.
