Po­lice in­ves­ti­gate armed rob­bery in Cumru

The Southern Berks News - - LOCAL NEWS -

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter an armed rob­bery was re­ported on Fawn Drive.

Po­lice said on Wed­nes­day Nov. 7, at ap­prox­i­mately 3:40 p.m., Cumru Town­ship Po­lice were dis­patched to the 00 block of Fawn Drive in Cumru Town­ship for an armed rob­bery which had just oc­curred.

The vic­tim ar­rived at his res­i­dence at ap­prox­i­mately 3:30 p.m. and upon ar­rival, ob­served a dark blue or grey newer model Dodge Dart parked in his drive­way. It quickly be­came ap­par­ent to the vic­tim he was in­ter­rupt­ing a bur­glary of his home, po­lice said.

The vic­tim picked up an ax and ap­proached the sus­pect’s Dodge Dart and was im­me­di­ately con­fronted by a sus­pect sit­ting in the driver’s seat of the ve­hi­cle. The sus­pect was a His­panic fe­male, with an ap­prox­i­mate age range of late teens to early twen­ties, with dark hair and a round face. The fe­male sus­pect pointed a hand­gun at the vic­tim and told him to walk away. The vic­tim’s chil­dren were in­side his ve­hi­cle and he com­plied with the fe­male sus­pect’s com­mand, ac­cord­ing to au­thor­i­ties.

Sub­se­quently, two other sus­pects ex­ited the res­i­dence, en­tered the Dodge Dart, and fled the area, last seen trav­el­ing east on Pheas­ant Drive.

A sec­ond fe­male sus­pect was de­scribed with an ap­prox­i­mate age range of late teens to early twen­ties, dark hair, thin build, wear­ing dark sweat­pants and hooded sweat­shirt. The third sus­pect was de­scribed as a light skinned black or His­panic male, ap­prox­i­mately 5 feet, 10 inches tall with a thin build, and an ap­prox­i­mate age of early twen­ties. The male was wear­ing dark sweat­pants, dark hooded sweat­shirt, and dark knit hat with grey pom pom on top.

The sus­pects stole mul­ti­ple hand­guns, a quan­tity of jewelry, lux­ury watches, and an undis­closed amount of cash.
