Grand Chute - Police in Grand Chute are searching for two suspects that terrorized an elderly couple in Grand Chute in an early morning home invasion robbery.
Police Seargent Todd Zolkowski said one suspect had a gun, and the two demanded the prescription painkiller OxyContin when they entered the home around 2am Friday.
The two got away with the drugs and some cash.
According to police, there were two people in the home, a man and a woman, and one of them was hit in the head with the gun, causing a cut that required stitches. Both were taken to Appleton Medical Center, treated and released.
It’s the second of two home invasions in the area in recent months. In both cases the suspects demanded the prescription drug.
Police said there has been an increase in thefts targeting prescription drugs, and the thieves either sell the drugs or steal them for their own habits.
Police believe this was not a random act and are now searching for the suspects. They say the men are between 22 and 30 years old. The first suspect is either White or Hispanic, between 5’2’’ and 5’3, ” and was wearing a brown sweater and a black bandana. The second suspect was White, 5’8” -5’9.” He had Orange or Light Brown Hair and was wearing black clothing and a red bandana.
What's going to happen if they break in a place with no drugs? If they are indeed armed, things could go from bad to extremely ugly very quickly.
