On August 10, 2020, at about 1333 hours, Newark Police responded to a residence in the 100 block of West Main Street for a report of a home invasion robbery. Three residents were home at the time of the robbery, but only one was confronted by the suspects.

The male victim reported that two black males entered the residence through the front door. One suspect held the victim at gunpoint while the other suspect went into a bedroom. It is unknown what, if any, property was taken at the time of the robbery. Both suspects, who appeared to be in their 20’s, left within a minute in an unknown direction. No suspect vehicle was observed.
