More than a week after a home invasion on Brookline Court in Palatine, no arrests have been made and investigators have no suspects, police said.
“They’re looking at all different angles and aspects of this case,” Palatine Police Cmdr. Kurt Schroeder said. With no updates on the home invasion case, Schroeder said there is an extra watch on the neighborhood and extra patrols in the area.
A 46-year-old Palatine woman was bound with duct tape, tied up by two armed men during a home invasion on the 400 block of West Brookline Court Wednesday, Sept. 26.
According to the Palatine Police Department, when the 46-year-old woman returned home from the gym around 9:20 a.m., two men armed with handguns confronted the woman when she entered her home in the small cul-de-sac West Brookline Court.
Police said the woman was tied up in the basement while the two men burglarized her home. According to the Palatine Police Department, the two men stole items from the woman’s purse and home before taking off in her 2009 black Cadillac Escalade.
The 46-year-old woman struggled for two hours before she was finally able to break free from the duct tape and run to a neighbors house to call 911.
Investigators were able to track the stolen vehicle through an “On-Star” system and the abandoned Escalade was found Wednesday on West Monroe Street in Chicago, more than 30 miles from the victim’s home in Palatine.
Still on the loose, the two subjects are described as black men in their 20s, one being about 5-foot-7 and 140 pounds, the other standing around 5-foot-10, weighing about 160 pounds.
