ISLE OF WIGHT, Va. (WAVY) — The Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office is looking for three men possibly involved in a home invasion that happened Monday morning.
On August 24, at about 7:30 a.m., deputies responded to the 15000 block of New Town Haven Lane for a report of a home invasion.
Officials say that witnesses saw “three white males in their 20s with tattoos on their arms and neck driving a dark in color older model SUV” — which is believed to be the one pictured below.
The statement released by the Sheriff’s Office says that one man entered the home armed with a shotgun and restrained the homeowner’s hands demanding money. The other two men drove up and down the street.
One of the homeowners escaped and ran to a neighbor’s home to call the police.
The man who entered the home was dressed in a dark-colored shirt and grey cargo pants with a baseball hat.
When deputies arrived, they found the man stole the homeowner’s vehicle and fled the scene. The stolen vehicle was recovered a few miles away.
Anyone with information concerning this incident is asked to contact the crime line at 1-888-LOCK U UP or submit an online tip at the P3 mobile tip app or at P3tips.com.
