ENGLEWOOD – Police are offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to arrests in a recent home invasion in town, authorities said.
A home was invaded on Valentine’s Day at the Cross Creek Point condominium complex on Broad Avenue around 10:29 p.m., Capt. Timothy Torell said.
Police discovered that a husband and wife had been assaulted and held at gunpoint by three gloved and “partially masked” men in their late teens or early 20s, Torell said.
The husband, 30, was unloading items from his car just outside the condo when the suspects, all of whom were armed with handguns, surrounded him, authorities said.
The man was than “forcibly” taken into his home where his wife, 33, was located by one of the armed suspects, Torell said. She was then held at gunpoint while other suspects searched their home and demanded cash and valuables, Torell said.

The incident lasted around 30 minutes before the suspects fled, Torell said.
Torell said police have “strong suspects” in the case, but believe the community may “have valuable information that could put us over the top in charging these individuals.”
Both private security and police patrols have been increased in the area, according Torell.
Anyone with information in the case should call 1-844-466-6789.
