Two men say they were robbed by four attackers

A pair of Cotten Apartments residents were pistol whipped and robbed Wednesday morning after four assailants invaded their home, according to police.“There’s not a lot to go on,” admitted McMinnville police investigator Todd Rowland, noting the men are Hispanic and therefore police are having to work through a language barrier and ethnic barrier. “Some Hispanics, especially those who are illegal, don’t like the police so it’s hard to get them to come forward when something like this happens.”Rowland said from what he has learned thus far it appears four people, two men and two women, made entry into a Cotten Apartment residence where two men were sleeping. Once inside they accosted both men, robbing them at gunpoint before pistol-whipping them and fleeing the scene.
