Attack In VW

The Van Wert Police Department is looking for at least one suspect involved in a break-in Saturday morning at a Van Wert home…on Burt St. They say it was a home invasion. The initial investigation found Johnie Patrick, 88, was sleeping when someone entered the front door of Patrick’s home, waking him up. Patrick called out to them…they hit him in the head. Officials say…the suspect put a bag over Patrick’s head and bound his hands behind his back. Once Patrick was able to free himself, which he estimated took about half an hour, he went to a neighbor’s house and the police were called. The intruder stole money and Patrick’s pickup truck…later found near US 224 and Marsh Road. The victim is getting care…as the search for the suspect continues.
