On January 7th, at approximately 2:30 AM, North Precinct officers responded to a 911 call of a robbery to a residence in the 2000 Block of NE 96th Street. Officers arrived and contacted the female victim. She stated that an unknown white male, 30′s, heavy set, wearing a black mask and dark colored jacket, armed with a hammer or mallet, forced entry into her home. The suspect tied up the victim and then fled, presumably, on foot. The victim was able to free herself and call 911. The victim was not injured. Patrol officers responded as well as a K9. An area search was conducted, and a K9 track was initiated, but the suspect remains at large. Robbery detectives responded to the location and processed the scene. They will be responsible for the follow up investigation. Anyone with any information on this crime is asked to contact the Robbery Unit at 684-5535.
