Youths Arrested After Numerous Upper Darby Home

Home-and-Family There’s been a lot of crime in Pennsylvania lately, but last week two violent youths believed responsible for as many as 10 home invasions were arrested in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. They were nabbed after a recent home invasion that began with their 3-AM entry through an open window in the 2900 block of Marshall Road. If one doesn’t have a home security system, one of the most obvious home security tips is to always lock your doors and windows at night. Yet many people continue to ignore this advice, only heeding it after their lives have been threatened. The three assailants were reportedly armed with a sawed-off shotgun and terrorized seven people at gunpoint, demanding money. Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told Action News that everyone was made to lay on the floor, including grandparents and a 5-year-old girl. The assailants threatened them with their lives if they didn’t reveal where their money was hidden. Somehow during the invasion, one of the occupants, a young woman, was able to sneak downstairs and call the police, who arrived to find the burglars trying to haul away a large-screen television. "One of these bums is only 16 years old, another is 22," Chitwood told reporters Police are convinced they are the same violent bandits who helped terrorize an elderly couple in Drexel Hill on Labor Day, again in the middle of the night. In this case, apparently four males broke into a home located on Kirks Lane and trashed the place searching for a stockpile of cash they believed to be kept there. The officers did not mention the presence or absence of a home security system. The young men terrorized an 88-year-old man and a 77-year-old woman by keeping them in their bed at gun and knifepoint. Chitwood told reporters, "At one point one of the invaders .es in with a butcher knife and starts stabbing the mattress and telling them that if they don’t tell them where the money is the next stab wound is going in his chest." The elderly couple was lucky not to suffer any injuries. The burglars stole two flat-screen televisions, a .puter, some jewelry, and the woman’s BMW, which Philadelphia police recovered last Monday in Northeast Philadelphia after it was involved in a hit and run accident. Two of the suspects are still at large and anyone with information is urged to call police at 610-734-7677. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
