Break-In at Riverbend

SUMMARY: There was a daytime break-in at two condos in Riverbend on December 31, 2008. At approximately 11:55 a.m. a victim returned home from running errands to find an individual in his residence, taking multiple items. During the struggle a weapon was implied, however no weapon was shown. The suspect did make threats to kill the victim. The suspect is described as a "nice looking, younger" light-skinned male black, possibly in his 20's with a mustache and potentially a goatee. A neighbor also saw the suspect and stated he was wearing a stocking cap(unknown color), but could not provide any further information of the suspect's personal descriptors. The victim and neighbor both describe the suspect's vehicle as a black older model sedan with a temporary tag in the rear window, partial number 011. The victim stated the vehicle is possibly a Volvo 4-door with a missing front grill or damage.
The assailant may have scouted the area and noted a large empty TV box with the trash on Tuesday. This would let him know that a brand new TV was inside the condo. Be careful what your trash tells a potential thief. We should be vigilant. If you see anything suspicious, call 911.
