Armed robber storms York Township home

A masked man robbed three people at gunpoint Wednesday morning in the 6000 block of County Road 219 in York Township, according to Sandusky County deputies.  

No was injured and the robber made off with about $210.

With few leads, deputies are now working to identify the suspect, described as a 5-foot-10 white man driving a dark-colored SUV, a deputy's report said.  

The victims — two women and a man — heard a knock at the door around 4 a.m.

The man answered the door and "observed the suspect brandishing what he believed to be a 12-gauge shotgun,” the report said.  

The suspect, wearing a “Halloween” mask and a stocking cap, ordered the three victims to give up the cash. After they did so, he locked them in a back bedroom, the report said.  

One of the victims squeezed through a window, then dashed to a neighbor’s house and called 911.   

The suspect fled south on Sandusky County Road 288 in a dark-colored SUV.

Deputies asked Clyde and Bellevue police to keep an eye out for the vehicle, but in the end the suspect escaped. Anyone with information call deputies at 419-332-2613.
