A woman and her six-week-old baby had a frightening experience as their home was invaded Monday.

It happened on the 2200 block of Rogers Street in South Bend.

South Bend Police dispatch confirms that the woman called Monday morning to report that her home was invaded by two gunmen. According to the caller, she and her six-week-old baby were forced to lie on the floor during the invasion.

After the gunmen broke open the locked door, they stole three TVs and a gaming system.

Fortunately, nobody was injured in the ordeal.

We'll bring you more information as it becomes available.

Niles family awoken by home intruder

A Niles family is asking neighbors to be vigilant after waking up to an early morning home invasion and burglary on Thursday.

Niles, Mich. A Niles family is asking neighbors to be vigilant after waking up to an early morning home invasion and burglary on Thursday.

It happened around 5:30 a.m. at a home on Hickory Street. The suspect entered the house despite the fact that two cars were parked in the driveway and the family's dog quickly alerted the homeowners to an intruder.

"I could see flashes of light, like there was a flashlight going back and forth and I just lay there as still as possible," said homeowner Lindsay Stover. Her two young children were tucked away in bed and her husband was sleeping beside her when she said she heard someone in the living room.

Stover then woke up her husband, Chris Mondschein, who sprung out of bed. Mondschein, a former marine, chased the suspect out of the house and down the driveway in his bare feet.

"I came back in the house to make sure everybody was okay and that there was nobody else in here," Mondschein said. "By that time, my wife was already on the phone with dispatch and they were on their way."

Niles Police arrived within minutes and determined that the back door had been the point of entry. The door was locked but may not have been closed properly.

The suspect made off with a wallet, a set of car keys, a check book and a PlayStation game system.

"Really all they take in that situation is your feeling of safety," Mondschein said.

The family didn't get a good enough look at the suspect to provide an accurate suspect description but police are actively investigating the crime.

The family hopes their terrifying experience will help put friends and neighbors in the area on high alert.

'Sometimes it's out of your control, you know, anything can happen. But you can take steps to prepare for it. You know, make sure everything's locked up," Mondschein said.

Police looking for home invasion suspects; officer injured in accident

Updated: Tue 7:09 PM, Mar 31, 2015
By: Ben Quiggle


ST. JOSEPH COUNTY---- Police are looking for two people they believe were involved in a home invasion in a Granger sub-division.

It happened just before 2 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon in the 1700 block of Weatherstone Court.

Police say two men, armed with baseball bats, forced their way into the home, just southwest of the Hickory and Brick Rd. Intersection.

A police officer responding to the home invasion hit a utility pole on Tuesday afternoon leaving over a hundred people without power.

The utility pole was completely sheared off its base, and the officer's car traveled another hundred feet after initially hitting the pole.

The officer suffered minor injuries.

"We will do a thorough investigation as we do any time a police vehicle is involved in a crash, we want to make sure if there are things we can do better in the future we learn from these sorts of things," said Asst. Chief Bill Thompson, of the St. Joseph County Police Dept. "We're greatly relieved our officer was not hurt, and certainly that a member of the community was not injured."

Police are looking for two white men, with baseball hats, who reportedly left on foot.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the St. Joseph County Police Dept.

I &M says they need to replace the pole, and currently 185 customers are without power.

UPDATE: Police searching for suspects in violent South Bend home invasion

Two females, 14 and 24 years old, say they were hit in the head with handguns during the home invasion.
Two people were hurt in a home invasion Tuesday night.

It happened in the 1700- block of Carlisle Street in South Bend, around 11:30 p.m.

Two females, 14 and 24 years old, say they were hit in the head with handguns. They have been treated and released for their injuries.

Police say four masked and hooded men forced their way into the home and were all armed in some way.

The suspects got away with some personal effects, electronics and a safe.

One neighbor says this is a good neighborhood but this event has him and his wife shaken.

"I figure if it happened next door, who knows if we could be next?" Richard Palmer of South Bend said. "We were concerned about the house next door to us. We didn't know what was going on or anything but the police had been there several times and it makes you a little nervous."

Police believe this invasion was not random. They say the suspects entered through the front door and made quick work. They also say the suspects likely have some sort of connection to the people in the home.

"We just believe it was targeted on purpose," Capt. Phil Trent of the South Bend Police Dept. said. "Usually, with crimes of this nature, when people come in and start making demands, it's usually not a random residence. There's a method to their madness. In this case it's no difference. We believe the house was targeted."

The home has at least three cameras on the corners of the house with two pointing directly at the front door. Police are yet to see the footage from those cameras and didn't give any indication if recorded video exists. However, they are looking into them.

"These individuals did a fairly decent job from the accounts of our victims of obscuring their identities," Trent said. "We might get a look of what transpired in the exterior of the house but it might not help us to make any identification."

While police say this wasn't a random act, neighbors are more on guard now than before.

"I told my wife this morning, I hate to say it but it sounds like it's time to buy a gun," Palmer said. "It starts to make you nervous."

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 574-288-STOP (7867) or toll-free at (800)342-STOP (7867). You can also visit the Crime Stoppers website
