Two of three suspects in a Clovis home invasion case from December were arrested June 10, Clovis police said Thursday.

The three suspects broke into a home in the 3300 block of Loyola Avenue on Dec. 14 and duct-taped together the hands of three boys under the age of 18. One 17-year-old boy was hit in the face with a handgun, police said. No one was seriously hurt, but the 17-year-old was treated for a cut lip at the hospital.

The three suspects ransacked the home, stealing jewelry, money and electronics, police said.

Clovis police arrested Fresno residents Christopher Copeland, 41, and Breanna Allen, 21. Both were arrested on suspicion of home invasion robbery and three counts of false imprisonment. Copeland was also arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and is being held in Sacramento County Jail for a federal probation violation, police said.

Police are still seeking the third suspect, 23-year-old Gabriella Aguirre, who has a warrant for her arrest in connection with the home invasion robbery. Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts is asked to call Clovis Police at (559) 324-2800 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP.
