On Tuesday, July 25, 2017, shortly before midnight, officers from the Rockford Police Department responded to a residence in the 1100 block of Jackson Street in reference to a home invasion. When they arrived officers learned that the house was occupied by an adult female and two children at the time of the incident. The victim reported that three unknown black male suspects, armed with handguns, entered the residence and demanded money. The suspects then fled the scene reportedly without obtaining anything of value. No one was injured during the incident.
The victim was not forthcoming with information and refused to cooperate with any investigative follow-up. It is believed that this residence and this victim were specifically targeted and this was not a random crime.
No further information is available at this time.
