On November 5, 2013, residents of a Geneva Greens apartment on Geneva Drive in Upper Allen Township had been out for the evening. When they arrived home, they found two armed suspects in the residence. The victims were held at gun point for approximately 30-60 minutes. During that time they were forced to call other family members home, who were then also held at gunpoint until the suspects finished their robbery. The suspects then fled the area. The suspects stole electronics, jewelry, and cash. Click here for the last news release.
