Police Investigate Home Robbery In Blackfoot
Blackfoot, Idaho (KIFI-TV) Police are investigating what happened inside a Blackfoot home Saturday night after an armed man wearing a mask broke in and demanded money, but they are releasing few details.
Police will not even say at which house the robbery occurred, just the street -- Fullmer Lane.
According to police, the robber was holding a gun and wearing a mask when he cornered a man in his garage. From there, he led the man inside the house and gathered the man, his wife and their two preschool-age children. He then demanded money.
The victims said the masked man held them for about a half hour before leaving with the cash.
“He made some statements about not calling the police for a set amount of time,” said Capt. Kurt Asmus. "I believe they agreed and did that. After the time expired, they called.”
Blackfoot police would not release the exact time frame.
