Success - Article sent! close

Lincolnshire police say they are investigating a home invasion on the village's west side reported late Thursday.

Police Detective John-Erik Anderson said Friday no injuries resulted from the invasion at a tri-level home in the Beaconsfield subdivision off Route 22. He said all police have to work with so far is that the reputed invaders had male voices and were covered in dark clothing and ski masks.

"We believe it was an isolated incident," Anderson said.

Anderson said a man in his 30s and his wife were in the home about 8:50 p.m. The husband was in the basement alone and came upstairs when he was confronted by the intruders.

Two suspects escorted the husband to the basement and demanded money and valuables, Anderson said. After the suspects went upstairs, police said, the husband escaped through a window well and ran to a neighbor's home to call 911.

Anderson said it's not known how the intruders slipped into the home. The homeowner reported that an unknown amount of cash was taken.
