Home invasion in South Hanover has neighbors on alert

UNION DEPOSIT, Pa. (WHTM) – The search is on for two suspects of a scary home invasion in South Hanover Township.

State police say a woman knocked on an apartment door along East Main Street Saturday and indicated that she was collecting money for a church in Lebanon County.

Investigators say a 67-year-old woman answered the door and told her that she was not interested in donating.

Police say before the door closed, a man with a gun, forced his way in.  According to the police report, there were two more women inside, ages 85 and 18.

The female suspect reportedly left and the man pointed the gun at all three, telling them not to worry, and that no one was going to get hurt.

The male suspect reportedly zip tied the 18-year-old victim’s hands in front of her body while the 67-year-old was forced to go through drawers and closets.

The victims told police that after no money was found, the man told the women that there was no reason to call police, cut the zip ties off of the 18-year-old and gave the 67-year-old a hug before leaving.

Nothing was taken during the home invasion.

Police say the suspects were described as a woman about 5’5” wearing a blonde frosted wig, possibly in her 30s. The man was 5’9” with a beard, wearing a small cap, khaki dress pants, a purple long sleeve dress shirt and white loafers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PSP Harrisburg at 717-671-7500.
