Two juveniles, 18-year-old arrested in South Bend home invasion

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - South Bend police say they have arrested three people, including two juveniles, in connection with a home invasion that happened Sunday. Investigators believe they could be linked to several other armed robberies in the area.

Footsteps in the snow are possibly the only visible remnant of an armed robbery on South Bend's Elwood Avenue Sunday.

Now, 18-year-old Chris Wilson is behind bars for assault and burglary, while his 17 and 16-year-old alleged accomplices are sitting in the Juvenile Justice Center, arrested for robbery and assault.

None of the neighbors who were home Monday afternoon say they heard anything, but South Bend police say those suspects pushed their way into one of the houses along the 2100 block of Elwood Ave., armed with guns.

The 16 and 18-year-old victims tell police they stole items from the home.

Officers later found two of the suspects less than half a mile away on North Johnson Street, and the third suspect a little more than half a mile away from the burglarized home on North Eclipse Place.

Investigators believe they may be connected to 'several' robberies and burglaries in multiple jurisdictions.
