Armed men storm Avoca home

SIX armed suspects are still on the run and police are urging anyone with information that may lead to their arrests to come forward. According to Greenwood Park police, the four men broke into an Avoca home Wednesday morning.

“Four of the suspects gained entry to the Tyne Avenue home through a pedestrian gate and broke into the house while the family was sleeping. Before ransacking the home one of the armed suspects attacked the homeowner with the back of a gun,” said Greenwood Park spokesperson Sergeant Vincent Mthembu.
