State Police seek man who broke into Harmony Twp. home

HARMONY TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – The New Jersey State Police is seeking the public’s assistance with identifying a man who forced his way into a home in Harmony Township and attempted to steal an item.

On Tuesday, July 31, at around 2:45 p.m., one of the suspects forced entry into a township residence by kicking in the front door. Once inside, he attempted to steal an item from the house before he was discovered by the victim. As a result, ran to a black Acura MDX, which was parked outside the home, and fled. He did not successfully steal the item, and the other suspect remained by the vehicle, state police said.

The victim described one of the suspects as a white or light-skinned Hispanic male, mid twenties, and approximately 6 feet tall, state police said

This composite sketch, which was rendered by the NJSP Forensic Photography and Composite Artist Unit, is based on the victim’s recollection of the suspect inside the home.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Adam England at NJSP Washington Station at 908-689-3101. Anonymous tips are welcome.
