(Boone County, Ky.) – Police in Boone County are in search of two men who committed a home invasion robbery Monday.
William Baise, 66, and his wife, Wanda, 62, were in their home on the 7000 block of Centercrest Lane in the Oakbrook subdivision near Florence. At about 11:40 a.m., two African American men pushed their way into the residence after William answered the door to a known acquaintance.
The two black men, who brandished a handgun, pushed the acquaintance aside and ordered William to retrieve cash from a known location.
“Once they got the money they taped up the couple and left the scene,” said sheriff’s office spokesman Tom Scheben.
Investigators describe the two suspects as being in their mid-20’s, both wearing jeans, and dark shirts. One of them had white spots on the shirt resembling paint or drywall mud. One of them was carrying a silver coffee mug.
Anybody with information on the case is asked to call Cincinnati Crime Stoppers, (513) 352-3040.
