Home invasion under investigation
By SUE WATSON
The Holly Springs Police Department is investigating a February 21 home invasion that took place around 10:45 p.m. in the 200 block of East Park.
Police Chief Patricia Selman said $5, a pearl necklace, a chain with a pearl drop and a gold serpentine chain were taken in the robbery with the victim present in the house.
Police described the suspect as a black male about 5 feet 10 inches, weighing about 175 pounds and wearing a dark-colored baseball cap turned backwards and a dark, waist length jacket.
The victim reported the same individual had come by the previous week around 10 p.m., saying her car window was down and asking for her keys so he could roll it up for her.
The suspect left after the victim asked why he was walking around her house at night.
The suspect used a ruse that he had some mail for the victim at which time the victim told the suspect to slide the mail under the door, Selman said. When the suspect failed to slide the mail under the door, the victim opened the door to retrieve her mail and the suspect grabbed her and began dragging her through the house looking for money.
Selman said the victim was treated for minor injuries following the attack.
Other incidents reported by police last week included:
