A central Greenwich home was robbed Monday night by three masked men who tied up the homeowner and made off with the contents of the family safe.
Shortly after 10:00pm, the occupants of a private residence on Ridge Street in central Greenwich had gone to bed.
The husband and wife homeowners had retired to their second floor bedroom and had neither locked the home’s exterior door, nor activated the installed alarm system.
At approximately 10:15pm the couple a heard noise and were suddenly confronted by three black males wearing masks and carrying crowbars. The couple was tied up and the robbers made off with thousands of dollars of cash and jewelry from the family safe. No one was injured during the robbery.
The suspects are described as: black males wearing partial masks and dark clothing, athletic build, average height, and believed to be somewhere in their late 20’s or early 30’s.
“A home invasion robbery of this type is fortunately very rare in Greenwich,” Captain Mark Kordick said. Kordick, the Commander of the Detective Division, pointed out that the violation of the sanctity of someone’s home is a significant crime that his department takes extremely seriously. “This will be a priority investigation for the division,” he said.
