The Wall Township Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying suspects wanted in a residential burglary that took place the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 7 in the West Belmar section of the township.
Detectives and Patrol Officers responded to a Walling Avenue residence at approximately 6:55 p.m. on Tuesday, after neighbors reported two subjects entering the residence and then flee towards State Hwy 71. According to its press release, one subject fled northbound and one subject fled southbound.
The department describes one suspect as “light skinned black male, approximately 6’1”- 6’3”, wearing a dark colored sweatshirt, dark jeans, Air Jordan sneakers and a black “durag” and a black beard.”
The second subject is “a shorter black male, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and a mask.”
The department also says the subjects were inside the residence and the Walling Avenue homeowner returned home and encountered one of the male subjects in the living room, where a physical encounter took place. The subjects then fled the residence.
Wall Township Police Department Ptl. Chris Gallagher, accompanied by a K-9, conducted a track with negative results, the press release says. Police officers from Spring Lake Heights and Belmar also assisted with a perimeter and search of the area.
Anyone with information in reference to this incident is asked to contact Det. Ty Hughes at 732-449-4500 ext. 1191 or at email@example.com.
