MODESTO -- A man was hit with a gun and his girlfriend threatened with a knife during an attempted home-invasion robbery Tuesday afternoon in downtown Modesto.
The man was working in his open garage at his home in the 400 block of Olive Avenue about 2:15 p.m. when two Latino men approached him, said Modesto police Sgt. Pat Kimes.
They inquired about his motorcycles and the victim said they could look at them. When they entered his garage, one pulled a gun and the other a knife.
