Hunt is on for suspect in Ramapo home invasion

Posted: Updated:

Police are searching for the suspect who broke into a Ramapo home Tuesday and held an elderly woman and her daughter hostage.

The 84-year-old victim says the suspect cut through a screen at the back of her Lime Kiln Road house and got in. After stealing jewelry and $400 in cash, the burglar allegedly escaped through the window and vanished into the nearby woods.

Ramapo police combed the area and questioned neighbors for hours in search of the suspect. Anyone with information about the robbery is urged to call the Ramapo Police Department at 845-357-2400.
