Cops: 2 robbers ransack Wallkill senior's home

Posted: Updated:

Police are searching for two armed men who they say are wanted for a home invasion and robbery in Wallkill.

According to authorities, the masked suspects busted down the door of Andrew Marticek's home on Scotchtown Collabar Road at around 5 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Marticek is 80 years old and uses a walker, but he says that didn't stop the robbers from hitting him, threatening him with a gun and stealing cash and his car.

Police say it appears the two suspects may have scoped out Marticek's house a month ago when they came by offering to cut a tree.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Wallkill Police Department at 845-692-7863.
