RED BLUFF, Calif. -

Red Bluff Police are searching for a suspect who pulled a gun on a woman and threatened her during a home robbery.

The incident happened around 9 p.m. Sunday in the 900 block of Hickory Street in Red Bluff.  

A woman was visiting her father who had left to get some food.

A short time later, the woman noticed a strange man in her father's bedroom.  He apparently let himself in after visiting someone else who lived at the house.  When the woman confronted him, he pulled a gun and threatened her.

She stood her ground, saying shoot her now, or get out of the house.    The man left with the other person living there.

The woman discovered the contents of her purse were missing.     

The suspect is described as white, in his mid-20s, 6'2", 220 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.  He has a tattoo on the side of his neck.

If you have information about the suspect, call Red Bluff Police at (530) 527-3131
