At approximately 1231 AM on 12/18/2016 members of the Rockford Police Department responded to an apartment in the 2400 block of Wesleyan Ave, to investigate a home invasion complaint. The resident of an apartment stated that he had returned home from work, when he noticed the headlights of a white minivan shining into his apartment. A short time later, he heard someone knocking at his apartment door. He looked out of the peephole, and saw a black male who was wearing a black ski mask covering his face, pointing a handgun at the peephole. He then ran into the bathroom. He heard the suspect kick in the door. One suspect stayed outside of the bathroom door, and threatened to shoot the victim if he came out of the bathroom, while at least two other suspect rummaged through the apartment. The suspects stole an undisclosed amount of money and some designer clothing. The suspects then fled the scene. The victim was unable to give a description of the suspects.
This is an ongoing investigation.
