WILLISTOWN- Police are investigating a burglary in progress which occurred Thursday September 20, 2012 at approximately 2:35 p.m.
According to a press release from Willistown Police, a homeowner witnessed a white man leaving the rear of a residence on Hilldale Road. The man was reportedly wearing a single black glove, and might have been armed with a small pocketknife.
The burglary suspect is described as being in his mid 30’s to early 40’s, with short dark hair, about six foot tall, and weighing approximately 200 pounds, with a muscular build, according to police.
According to the release, the man was wearing a black T-shirt, black pants, and black boots and he had a noticeable scar on the left side of his neck.

The suspect was last seen fleeing the area in a dark blue or black Jeep Liberty, with an unknown Pennsylvania license plate number.
Anyone who recognizes the subject in the sketch or has any information concerning this investigation, please contact Willistown Detectives at (610) 251-0222 or (610) 647-1440.

I first heard about this with an alert from Malvern Patch.  Contained within the comments on the article on Malvern Patch, was a reference to another recent burglary on Duffryn Avenue. The Duffryn Avenue burglary is not believed to be related to yesterday’s Hilldale Rd burglary.

Here’s hoping local police close these cases soon.
