GLENDALE -- The Glendale Police Department and Silent Witness are asking for the public's help to find a home invasion suspect.
On Aug. 8, a suspect entered a home in the area of 43rd and Peoria avenues and through an open garage door.
Sgt. Paul Penzone with Silent Witness said the suspect had a handgun and tied up the woman, who is temporarily using a wheelchair.
The suspect stole the 63-year-old woman's jewelry and wrote down the woman's Social Security and driver's license numbers.
Penzone said the suspect removed property from the victim's purse, including her debit card. He demanded she provide him with the PIN number. The suspect immediately went to an ATM machine and withdrew money from the victim's account.
The victim said the suspect was in her house for 30 to 45 minutes.
The suspect is described as an African-American male, 20 to 30 years old, 6 feet 2 inches and 200 to 225 pounds. He is believed to be driving a maroon four-door Buick.
A $1,000 reward is being offered. Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
