Armed Citizen Halts Robbery By Masked, Knife-Wielding Home Invader

posted on August 7, 2015

A man wearing a mask and a black hoodie held a Sunbury, Pa., man at knifepoint late Monday night, police say, in the third incident involving a weapon in two weeks in the small, Susquehanna River town. 

According to Sunbury Police Chief Brad Hare, the armed home invader demanded unspecified items from the resident, but the attempted robbery ended after a neighbor, hearing the disturbance, retrieved his personal firearm and confronted the attacker, who fled. 

“Unfortunately, it is still a busy time of the year and we are running from call to call, but we want these folks [armed criminals] to know we will not tolerate this kind of behavior,” Hare said.
