Police: Robbers armed with cattle prod break into Garden City home

August 27, 2013 

— Garden City police are searching for two men they say broke into a house in the 500 block of 43rd Street early Tuesday morning.

Five adults were in the home when the alleged break-in occurred, and witnesses told police that one of the suspects was armed with a cattle prod.

Two of the home’s occupants suffered minor injuries but did not need to go to the hospital. One victim was shocked with the cattle prod, Garden City Police Sgt. Russ WInter said

Officers responded to the home at about 1:30 a.m. and searched for the suspects but couldn't find them.

"We're still searching, detectives are still out and about," Winter said Tuesday morning.

The robbers did not get away with any money or property, he said.

The first suspect is described as a white man in his early to mid-20s. Witnesses said he is about 5’8 and was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. The suspect was armed with the cattle prod, witnesses said.

The second suspect is described as a man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants. He was last spotted running near 42nd Street and the Greenbelt.

Garden City police urge anyone with information about the robbery or the suspects to call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.
