• Homeowner hit in face, $800 stolen during invasion at Shaler Township house


    A man said he was hit in the face with a gun on Monday morning when someone broke into his Shaler Township home and stole $800.

    Police said the invasion happened at a home on Marzolf Road, near Marzolf Elementary School.

    The Shaler Township Police chief told Channel 11's Cara Sapida that the school was placed on lockdown for about 10 minutes while police responded.

    Sapida spoke to the victims, who said they were lying in bed when the armed, masked men entered their home. A male victim said the men held guns to their faces. He said he suffered a black eye during the ordeal.

    Diana Stanchic, 77, is angry that her young neighbors were robbed.

    "Try me. I'll kill you. If you get past the dog and kill the dog, you've signed your own death warrant," she said.

    So far, no arrests have been made.
