Havertown home robbed after suspect claims to be from Occupy Philly


Haverford Township police are investigating a home invasion in the unit block of Joann Circle in Havertown, Pa.

In a news release, officials said a female resident answered a knock on her door at around 10 a.m. on Nov. 30 to a man who claimed he was a member of Occupy Philly.

The suspect then entered the home, told the victim it was a robbery and instructed her to go to the second floor. The suspect placed her in the second floor bathroom and told the female victim to be quiet.

He then took an undetermined amount of cash from her wallet.

The female victim called police shortly after he left. Police determined the suspect fled the scene.

The victim was unharmed. She could not provide additional information.

In a phone interview with Neighbors Main Line, Sgt. Shant Bedrossian said the suspect did not use a weapon. He could not name the victim.

Investigations are ongoing.

Haverford police said anyone with information regarding the incident should call the police department's investigation unit at 610-853-1298 ext. 1230, or dial the anonymous tip line at 610-853-9213.
