Update from Rockford Police on this, it was a home invasion
On Tuesday, March 7, 2017, at around 8:35 pm officers of the Rockford Police Department responded to 226 Cole Avenue in reference to a Home Invasion.
The victim was working inside this residence when two male suspects entered pointing a gun at him demanding money, and a third suspect remained outside. The victim cooperated and was not injured. No gunshots were fired and the suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is urged to call the Rockford Police Department at 815-966-2900 or Crimestoppers at 815-963-7867.
