K-9 units hunting attempted home invader in South Bend - Fox 28: South Bend, Elkhart IN News, Weather, Sports

UPDATE: Suspect at large in South Bend home invasion


Police are searching for a home invasion suspect.  St. Joseph County Police Lieutenant Matt Blank  said just before 8:30 Friday night a tall, thin, white man kicked in the front door of a house on Ivy Road.  He demanded money of the people in the home and showed a weapon.  Blank said the elderly couple in the home complied with the request and gave the suspect money.

 Blank said they believe the man then fled using a bicycle he had nearby.  Police used K9 units to search the area but they now believe the suspect escaped their perimeter.  Police say the man was wearing all black and was wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

If you have any information contact police.
