Deputies search for masked armed robber after home invasion

A masked man with a gun broke into a Springfield Twp. home and threatened someone inside.

Clark County deputies say the victim called 911 around 1:45 p.m. Thursday after he was able to get out of the home and to a neighbor’s house.

He told deputies the man broke through the front door on Fourth Avenue and demanded money, according to a sheriff’s report.

Officers and deputies with K-9s searched the area. Witnesses also saw the man, who was wearing a ski mask, leave the scene and flee on foot, the report states.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.
