LANCASTER – Two ski-masked men burst into a Lancaster home Wednesday morning and robbed an elderly couple at gunpoint, authorities said.
The home invasion robbery occurred shortly before 9 a.m. at a residence in the 44700 Block of Raysack Avenue, according to Lancaster Community Relations deputy Michael Rust.
“They forced their way into the home, confronted the occupants with a gun and got an unknown amount of cash,” Rust said. “The house was occupied by a man and his wife, they’re both extremely elderly.”
The couple was not able to see if the suspects ran away on foot or if there was a getaway vehicle. The robbers took only cash, and did not ransack the home or harm the couple, Rust said.
The suspects are described as White males in their late teens or early 20s, wearing all black and black ski masks, Rust said.
“At least one of them was armed with a handgun,” he added.
Anyone with information on this incident is urged to contact Lancaster Sheriff’s Station detectives at 661-948-8466. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-tips (8477).
