Previous Press Release on this incident:

On July 13, 2017, the Demopolis Police Department was dispatched to a home invasion on Vine Avenue in Demopolis, Alabama.   Upon Officers arrival they were notified that a Unknown Black Male had entered the residence and tied the homeowner up and robbed her.  The victim was not seriously injured in the incident, but was truly shaken in the ordeal. 

DPD Investigators and Crime Scene Techs were called to process the scene and interview any witnesses.

We will work hard to get this person brought to justice and continue to give our citizens a piece of mind in knowing our city remains safe, Reese said.
