CALN >> An al­leged rob­ber wear­ing a ski mask and bran­dish­ing a firearm re­port­edly ap­proached a cou­ple who had just re­turned home, or­dered the male vic­tim onto the ground, stole his valu­ables and kicked him sev­eral times be­fore flee­ing the scene.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the in­ci­dent oc­curred at about 11:45 p.m. Oct. 27 on Skyview Lane in Thorn­dale.

Po­lice said the al­leged rob­ber pointed the gun at the man while steal­ing from him, and de­scribed the sus­pect as an African-Amer­i­can man, be­tween 6 foot 2 inches and 6 foot 3 inches tall, with a thin build.

He re­port­edly wore a black ski mask, which cov­ered his head and face above his top lip. And his lips, mouth and check were ex­posed, po­lice said. The sus­pect had no fa­cial hair.

Po­lice said he fled in a dark col­ored Nis­san Max­ima with a Delaware reg­is­tra­tion plate, and that a ve­hi­cle match­ing this de­scrip­tion is cur­rently be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by the Caln Po­lice Depart­ment.

Po­lice ask any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to this in­ci­dent to call 610-383-1821. Au­thor­i­ties also cau­tion res­i­dents to be aware of their sur­round­ings, es­pe­cially late at night.
