ELBERTA, Ala. (WALA) - Police are looking for two suspects in a violent home invasion in Elberta Tuesday, September 24. Roads were shut down and a manhunt came up empty.
HOME INVASION IN ELBERTA
It was a violent morning on Brighton avenue in Elberta. Officials said a woman was confronted by the business end of a shotgun when she answered her door to two men.
Elberta Police Chief Stanley Devane told us, “Both of them had do rags on; and as soon as she got to the door, they snatched the door open. One of them had a shotgun. He forced her to the floor, starting demanding where the purse was and her wallet was. They wanted to know where her home phone was and her cell phone and her jewelry box and all that was.”
Police said one man hit the woman several times with the shotgun as the other ransacked the house. Eventually, she managed to get away and run to a neighbor’s home for help and the two men took off before cops could arrive.
Chief Devane said the scariest part of the incident is how violent it was. They really want to get these two men off the street.
Police shut down roads and searched for the two men but came up empty handed. Chief Devane hopes the public can help.
“Anything that you see. Call us,” Devan said. “If it’s nothing, that’s fine. If it’s something that’s even better because maybe we can stop something from happening.”
