JPD investigating home invasion | Crime
Jonesboro police are searching for four men accused of barging into a family’s home early Wednesday morning and robbing them at gunpoint.
At 12:30 a.m. officers were called to a home in the 3100-block of Kingsbury Street.
One of the victims told police he and his mother were sitting in the living room when someone knocked on the door.
When he opened the door, four men rushed in. He said the men wore bandanas over their faces and were carrying handguns.
The victim said one of the men pointed a pistol in his face and told him to get on the ground.
The four men then went through the house pointing their weapons at two other members of the man’s family.
A third victim told police one of the men forced her to lift her shirt and bra because “he knew that’s where she kept” her money.
As the four were leaving the home, after collecting $800 in cash, one of the men reportedly punched a fourth victim in the face. The victim told police he heard one of the suspects say “Come on, Lil Bo, let’s go.”
Officers arriving on the scene set up a perimeter and a K9 track was attempted, but they did not find the suspected crooks.
The victim’s mother told police she was having a panic attack and was taken to NEA Baptist Hospital with breathing difficulties.
