Manhunt For Armed Sisters Goes Nationwide, Believed To Be Crossing Country

San Bernardino, CA – Police are looking for two sisters whom they said forced their way into a home with a rifle and handgun and then pistol-whipped the residents.

Officials said the incident occurred at about 1:45 a.m. on May 8 at a home in the 200-block of North Central Avenue, KTLA reported.

Police said the home invasion was committed by two sisters who were later identified as 18-year-old Lyiah Faison and 21-year-old Alize Faison.

The victims told responding officers that the two women demanded they hand over their property, KTLA reported.

Officers said the three people inside the home when the robbery occurred told them they refused to cooperate with the home invaders.

But police said that didn’t stop Lyiah and Alize Faison, according to KTLA.

The victims told officers that the women stole about $560 in property from them.

They also said that the women pistol-whipped one of the victims who wasn’t cooperating.

The Faison sisters fled the scene of their crime in a white, newer-model Honda Civic or BMW sedan, KTLA reported.

San Bernardino Police Sergeant Jon Echevarria said the women remain at large and are believed to have fled California.

Sgt. Echevarria said the Faison sisters may have headed to North Carolina or someplace else on the East Coast, according to KTLA.

Police have asked anyone with information about the sisters’ whereabouts to contact the San Bernardino Police Detective D. Sims at 909-384-5665, sims_da@sbcity.org or Sergeant B. Baker at 909-384-4955, baker_br@sbcity.org.

Lyiah Faison has been described as being five feet, nine inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds, KTLA reported.

Her older sister, Alize Faison, is described as being five feet, five inches tall and weighing 130 pounds.

Police said both women have black hair and brown eyes, according to KTLA.
