Six people were in a New Cassel home this morning when burglars entered with guns.
According to police, two Hispanic males knocked on the front door of a 3rd Avenue residence at 10:37 a.m., displaying handguns and forcing their way inside. In the house at the time were two adult females, one adult male, and three juveniles under the age of 13. The victims were forced to a second story bedroom where the subjects demanded cash. A short time later the male homeowner returned to the residence and was confronted by the subjects as he reached the second floor. During the confrontation one subject discharged a single gunshot which lodged into the wall. The subjects fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and jewelry. The male homeowner retrieved a semi-automatic rifle and discharged a single gunshot after exiting the home. There were no injuries reported.
The first subject is described as 6’0” tall. The second subject is described as 5’0” tall, wearing a dark ski mask. The investigation is ongoing.
