FULTON (MCT) – The Fulton Police Department is asking for assistance in locating two men who allegedly participated in a home invasion earlier this month.

Fulton Police Lt. Donnie Pridemore said Tuesday that officers responded to a home invasion and robbery Aug. 16 in the 500 block of 24th Avenue in Fulton. Two white men, of indeterminate ages, forced entry into the residence, physically assaulted the residents and stole prescription medications, according to police. Both residents suffered injuries, but refused treatment at the scene, according to a release.

The suspects might have fled into a light-colored van with a third accomplice. Pridemore added that based on surveillance footage, it appears that one man had a goatee.

Pridemore explained that the police department delayed in releasing this information to the public to prevent any interference with the investigation. Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to contact the Fulton Police Department at (815) 589-3617 and speak with Pridemore or Officer Jeremy Leitzen.
