Sketch of home invasion suspect released

Posted

Warwick Police have released a sketch of one of the suspects in an armed home invasion that occurred earlier this month.

The incident occurred at approximately 5 p.m. on Nov. 9 in the area of Draper and Longmeadow avenues. Police say it is believed the home may have been targeted.

“Two masked suspects entered the home and a struggle ensued with the residents,” a Wednesday statement from Capt. Joe Hopkins reads. “During the struggle, one of the suspects lost his mask and may have sustained an eye injury.”

Police are circulating two images – a composite sketch of the suspect who was unmasked, and an image of earrings similar to ones that suspect wore at the time of the home invasion.

The suspect shown in the sketch is described as being in his early 20s with a thin build, standing between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet tall.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact detectives at 468-4233.

Information can also be provided directly to Detective Brenton Groeneveld (Brenton.Groeneveld@warwickri.com, 468-4237) or Detective Sokphannareth Chea (Sokphannareth.Chea@warwickri.com, 468-4240).

Was that last comment necessary? Loser never has been a Warwick FF charged with anything so absurd.

You are a disgrace whoever you are.

As for this house it’s well known as a place to deal drugs. It had to be on PD radar. Various cars in and out all day everyday.

They got what they deserve. You dabble I’m that life you risk consequences.
