Urbandale Man Arrested During Home Invasion
LEON, Iowa (AP) — Police in southern Iowa say they made one arrest in a bizarre home invasion.
The Des Moines Register reports that as many as four masked men broke into a house in Leon occupied by a 26-year-old woman and her children, ages 10, 4 and 3. Police say the men were armed with a bow and arrow, a long gun and other weapons and demanded drugs, money and guns.
The men kept the woman and children separated, but she managed to call her husband on a hidden cellphone. A neighbor who checked the house saw a masked man inside and called police.
Officers arrested a 24-year-old Urbandale man they found when they arrived, but the others ran and were not caught.
The woman and children suffered minor injuries.
