Frightening Millburn home invasion assault caught on camera
MILLBURN, N.J. (WABC) -- Police in New Jersey are searching for the man behind a frightening home invasion and assault that was caught on camera.
The suspect, who burst into the home in Millburn and beat up a woman in front of her young daughter, is on the run, and authorities are hoping the nanny-cam surveillance video will lead to an arrest.
The incident happened around 10:30 a.m. on June 21 at the Cypress Street home.
Police say the unidentified male, described as a black man standing about 5-foot-11 and weighing 210 pounds with a light salt and pepper beard, forced his way inside and attacked the woman while her 3-year-old little girl sat on the couch.
He punched and kicked the woman repeatedly, then put her in a choke hold before throwing her down a flight of stairs. He made off with an undetermined amount of jewelry, including the woman's wedding ring, and fled the scene.
The woman was transported to an area hospital, where she was treated for injuries to her face and legs.
In addition to the girl, the woman also had an 18-month-old sleeping upstairs.
Anyone with information or who can identify the individual in the photo is asked to call Millburn Police at 973-564-7001. A $22,500 reward is offered for information leading to an arrest.
