Binghamton Woman Recounts Ordeal as Armed Masked Men Invaded Home
Police are looking for two men who terrorized a 29-year-old woman when they burst into her home in Binghamton's First Ward.
The woman had just gotten out of the shower when she heard what "sounded like my door getting kicked in." She said one of the men who entered the Julian Street residence was armed with a revolver.
The resident told WNBF News that she had a shotgun but it was taken from her during a struggle. She was held down and repeatedly struck in the face by the man with the handgun.
The woman said both of the intruders had their heads covered with masks and wore black leather gloves. They were dressed in black. She said they kept demanding "Where is it? Where is it?" but she didn't know what they wanted.
The resident said she was knocked down a couple of times and dragged by her hair. Although an ambulance was called and medics examined her, she declined to go to the hospital for treatment.
The woman said the intruders took her shotgun and another gun from the residence before leaving on foot, heading north toward Baxter Street. She estimated the ordeal lasted nearly ten minutes.
Although an ambulance was called and medics examined her, she declined to go to the hospital for treatment.
