Perry Township Home Invasion


Perry Township Home Invasion

This week’s “Crime of the Week” focuses on a Home Invasion which took place in Perry Township in 2021.

On Friday, November 19, 2021, at approximately 10:30am, unknown person(s) entered a home located in the Brookside Estates neighborhood in Perry Township of Franklin County. While inside, they knocked a 91-year-old man to the floor, tied him up and covered his eyes and mouth, then took a small amount of cash from his wife’s purse which was laying on the couch. Investigators believe that the offender(s) left when they heard the victim’s wife moving upstairs, and left the elderly man tied up on the kitchen floor. A maroon Hyundai SUV with dark, tinted windows was seen leaving the scene.  A neighbor’s Ring camera caught the vehicle, but the license plate cannot be read.
