The suspects are a 61-year-old Bergenfield, NJ man and a 28-year-old Bergenfield, NJ man. The older suspect is reportedly the father of the younger suspect.
According to Bergenfield authorities, the suspects broke into a house located on Willow Street in Bergenfield, NJ. Law enforcement received a 911 call about the burglary and dispatched officers to the scene.
Police talked to the homeowner, who said that she returned home to see that her rear window had been smashed. Detectives found a blood trail starting at the shattered window and followed it to the backyard of the residence located next door.
Police reportedly found the two suspects inside the other house. Police also allegedly discovered jewelry and cash stolen from the victim’s home.
Detectives with the Bergenfield Police Department investigated further and reportedly learned that the suspects had abused an 84-year-old relative. According to officials, the suspects withheld “necessities” from the victim.
