An armed robber invaded an Upper Milford Township home Thursday morning, according to state police at Fogelsville.
At about 11 a.m., police say, a Hispanic male entered the Main Road East home through an unlocked back door. He was armed with a small black handgun and demanded money from the resident. She gave him money from her purse and he then fled on foot in an unknown direction.
The male is described as being 5-feet-6 with a stocky build and wearing black jeans, a hooded sweatshirt and a baseball hat.
State police spent at least five hours along Main Road East on Thursday, according to neighbors. One neighbor told Patch that the police came to his house to question him after the incident happened.
He says he was told the robber is still “on the loose” and possibly fled along railroad tracks in the area. Other neighbors reported seeing police cars and investigators in the area throughout the day.
The robber had not been located as of Thursday evening, according to a state police press release issued around 6:30 p.m.
The investigation into this incident is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact state police at 610-395-1438.
