Englewood NJ Police Investigate Violent Home Invasion Robbery on Valentine’s Day
Police are searching for three men accused of committing a violent home invasion and robbery in Englewood NJ on Valentine’s Day.
The incident occurred at the Cross Creek condominium complex around 9:30 p.m. According to authorities, the three suspects saw one of the victims, a 30-year-old Englewood man, unloading groceries from his car. The suspects, who were wearing masks over their faces, approached the victim and pointed handguns at him.
The three men allegedly forced the man to enter his apartment. Once inside, the suspects allegedly held the male victim’s wife at gunpoint and searched the residence for valuables.
After approximately one hour, the suspects reportedly exited the apartment and fled the area.
The Englewood Police Department conducted an investigation and obtained home video surveillance footage that reportedly shows the suspects fleeing the neighborhood in a motor vehicle.
If detectives can eventually identify and apprehend the suspects, it is likely that criminal charges for armed robbery, burglary, weapons offenses, and aggravated assault would follow.
While law enforcement searches for the robbers, Englewood police have asked local residents to take caution when leaving their homes. This means locking all doors and closing all windows and proceeding with caution while walking toward cars parked outside.
