According to detectives, while in her Beach Street home with her 48 year old husband and their 2 year old son, the 34 year old wife and mother opened the door after their doorbell rang expecting Halloween “Treat or Treaters”. On the doorstep were three adult subjects all wearing masks covering their faces. The subjects, two of whom were armed with handguns, forced the door open and entered the home. After demanding the homeowners sit down, the husband, who refused to comply, was pistol whipped numerous times in the head. Both victims were then bound at the hands and feet with duct tape. Two additional subjects joined the group and all began to ransack the home. The female victim, who was able to free herself, grabbed her son and ran next door to call 911. All five subjects then fled the house in an unknown direction. The proceeds from the house are undetermined at this time.
The husband, who suffered head lacerations, was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Male black, 5’8”tall, 200 pounds with a white mask and dark clothes.
