Police: 4 suspects wanted after stealing $5K, cellphones during home invasion
Police are still searching for four men wanted for invading and ransacking a home in Tremont, according to police.
Police say four victims were cornered in their own apartment, held at gunpoint and tied up while the suspects robbed them just after 12 p.m. last Saturday.
News 12 is told two of the suspects entered through the front door of the apartment building while another two bashed in a mounted air conditioner.
Surveillance video captures two of the suspects entering through the front door.
The victims are a 56-year-old female, a 28-year-old male, an 18-year-old female and an 18-year-old male. Police say the suspects pointed handguns at them, demanded money and hit one of the victims in the head with a handgun. The suspects got away with $5,000, three credit cards and three cellphones.
One neighbor says she has lived there her whole life and has never seen something like this. She says an entire team of law enforcement showed up at her door that night.
News 12 spoke with one other person in the apartment, and they say that thankfully no one was physically hurt there, but that the victims are still very much shaken up.
Police are still searching for the suspects.
