Hialeah home invasion under investigation, 2 men in custody

HIALEAH, FLA. (WSVN) - Two men who ransacked a residence in Hialeah, Monday, have been taken into police custody.

According to Hialeah PD, two male subjects who were allegedly armed with handguns, entered a home and threatened one of the residents, at around 3 p.m., Monday.

7’s Skyforce HD flew over the scene of the property as Miami-Dade County and Hialeah Police, as well as K-9 officers, inspected the area of the 500 block of East 52nd Street. They seemed to be looking for a weapon that was allegedly thrown into a neighbor’s backyard.

Those subjects struck a 76-year-old male resident in the head, according to police, and ransacked the home before fleeing on foot. The victim’s 20-year-old granddaughter was also confronted by the armed robbers.

The elderly victim was taken to Palmetto Hospital in stable condition. The granddaughter was not injured.

Police said the crooks were able to collect some cash and jewelry before taking off on foot. The suspects were seen running southbound until an intersection at a main roadway of West 49th Street.

Police eventually caught up with them at a nearby Taco Bell and recovered the firearms in question. Their charges are still unknown.

The home invasion remains under investigation.
