An elderly man who lives on East 22nd Street was the victim of a home invasion on Tuesday afternoon, little after 1pm, when two men, both African-American, entered his home and stole some of his possession.
The man, 79-year-old, was still inside his home when the two criminals dressed in balaclavas somehow managed to get inside to burglarize it. The two, after taking the items they perceived were of value escaped. The old-man was fortunately not injured or harmed by the two.
It is incidents like these that are sometimes prevented and protected against when a home owner has a legal gun in his possession, not just to defend his property but also himself.
Paterson Police are investigating the incident.
