At approximately 1:01 p.m., 2nd District officers responded to the residence on Arden Road, for the report of an armed robbery that had just occurred. The preliminary investigation revealed that two male subjects forcibly entered the home through a rear door and accosted the 68-year-old male home owner at gun point. The suspects asked the victim if he had tape in the house. He produced a roll of duct tape and they bound him with it.
Once the victim was restrained, the suspects stole property and exited the home through the same rear door. The victim was able to quickly free himself and summons police; he was not injured.
The suspects are described as white males, in their late teens, who have thin builds and appear to be approximately 5’ 6” to 5’ 7” tall. They were wearing all black or dark colored clothing including black knit caps, “baggy” jeans, and brown canvass or cotton gloves.
