Home invasion investigation ongoing
Cmdr. Troy Knudson said Friday five detectives are following leads and working around the clock.
Deputies responded at 11:01 p.m. Thursday to a report of a home invasion on East Bowers Lake Road northeast of Milton.
Two armed robbers knocked at the door of a couple’s home and posed as stranded motorists, according to the sheriff’s office.
The men bound the homeowners with duct tape, threatened them with a handgun and stole items from their home.
One homeowner was able to get a knife in the kitchen and cut the other free.
Investigators said the home was targeted and that it was not a random act. They declined to release what was stolen from the home.
Anyone with information about Thursday night’s rural Milton armed robbery can call Janesville Area CrimeStoppers at (608) 756-3636, the Rock County Sheriff’s Office at (608) 757-8000, or 911 and ask to speak to a supervisor or detective at the sheriff’s office.
