Woman, Kids Held At Gunpoint During Break-In


Rockford Police continue to deal with an uptick in home invasions across the city.

The most recent one happened at 1218 Sherman Ave. around 10:30 a.m. this morning. The victim said she was in her kitchen when she heard one of the suspects kick her door in. She ran to the living room to find three men standing over her kids and nephews, one armed with a silver handgun. The victim was ordered to lay on the floor as the suspects went through the home.

Nothing was taken. There have now been 5 home invasions in Rockford in the last week.
