Benton Township Police Investigating Armed Robbery

Benton Township Police are looking for several suspects after a home invasion and armed robbery. Investigators say it happened late Saturday night at a home in the 1800 bock of Crystal Court when four or five men with guns burst into the home, hit two victims with handguns and demanded money. A third person in the apartment woke up to the commotion and fired a shot with a gun from the second floor, scaring off the intruders. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken from the apartment, and a Benton Harbor Public Safety K-9 tracked the scent of the thieves to another apartment in the complex where a window was found open. Both men who were beaten were treated at Lakeland Hospital for head injuries and released. The suspects are all described as black men who had their faces covered.
