UPDATE: Police seek robbers after home invasion
TOWN OF BELOIT--More details have been released about Wednesday night’s armed robbery/home invasion in the 3100 block of S. Madison Road.
According to a Town of Beloit Police Department news release two elderly residents were home at 7:37 p.m. when two Halloween-masked men, armed with tree branches, entered their home through a rear door and demanded money.
One of the robbers beat the male resident with a branch while the other man dumped the contents of the female victim’s purse and took the billfold. The male victim’s wallet was forcibly removed from him. Emergency medical personnel treated him for minor injuries at the scene.
