State police said an Upper Hanover woman was surprised by two intruders in her home June 5 around dinnertime.
According to reports, the 50-year-old woman was sitting in the living room of her home in the 500 block of Fairview Street when two black men reportedly entered through an unlocked front door at 6:12 p.m. Authorities said one of the men stood in front of the woman while the second man went through the first-floor bedrooms, looking for valuables.
Police said the man staying with the victim then had her go into the kitchen where she was forced to sit at the kitchen table.
Both men later fled the residence toward Washington Street in East Greenville. The men were described as black males, one approximately 5’10" tall, the other 6’1" tall, both with a thin build wearing a black t-shirt and blue jeans.
Police did not report any injuries to the victim.
A Compaq laptop computer was taken from the home.
This is the second home invasion reported in a little over a month in Upper Hanover. On May 1 around 12:50 a.m., state police said a 42-year-old man was met at his front door by two armed men who robbed him at gunpoint in the 2900 block of Kutztown Road.
The suspects in that case, who reportedly wore black ski masks and gloves, rummaged through that home, stealing an undisclosed amount of cash and 10 guns.
The victim was then tied up in his basement. The burglars fled the scene in the man’s silver 2006 Ford F150, registration ZCF5779.
Authorities are asking anyone with information in either case to call PA State Police, Skippack barracks, at 610-584-1250.
