Public Information Officer Carrie Summers released a media statement addressing a recent home invasion that occurred on Sunday in Northport. 

The statement read:

'On 02/07/2016 at 6:55pm, a black male, approximately 5’8, 180lbs, wearing all black clothing, a ski-mask, and gloves entered into an occupied residence in the 5000 Block of Easton Lane.

The suspect entered through an unlocked garage door that was left open while the other homeowner went to a store near-by. As the suspect entered the residence, the victim made contact with him. The suspect immediately fled as the victim pursued him, grabbing and ripping his shirt. However, the suspect was able to elude the victim. The victim’s vehicle was later discovered to have been entered.

No weapons were reported to have been involved, there were no injuries to the victim, and no items were found to be missing.'

Northport Police Department is encouraging anyone with information, including activity seen as unusual or suspicious, to please contact Northport Police Department at 205-339-6600 or or Crime Stoppers at 205-752-7867 (STOP).
