Home invasion foiled by medical alert device
Written police reports say that, as the alarm sounded, the two hooded male suspects fled the house in 2600 block of East Main Street. The men, both about 6 feet tall and one of them armed with a gun, had kicked in the back door at 2:45 a.m. and surprised the 53-year-old woman as she slept on a living room couch with her grandson, age 7.
The suspects had ordered the woman to lie on the floor but she dashed into her mother’s bedroom and told her to use the alarm to summon help.
There were no reports of injuries.
