Officers responded to the area of Shelburne Drive on a report of a burglary in progress and the suspects were in possession of guns.

Units arrived to find an empty house and a broken rear door window. Units initiated an area search, where they located one suspect fleeing the area on foot.

K-9 Hondo and Sgt. Charles Morgan tracked the suspect and found him hiding behind a house on Hardwick Avenue. The suspect surrendered to the K-9 team and was taken into custody with no injuries.

The other suspect was found sitting on a vehicle at the intersection of Stoneham and Shelburne. He was taken into custody without incident. Both were found to be unarmed.

The homeowner came home with her 16-year-old son not too long after both suspects were in custody.

Investigation revealed the 16-year-old male was home when he heard the rear door window break.

He went to a bedroom and hid under the bed. The two suspects came into the room and found him under the bed. One of the suspects ordered him out from under the bed and took him into another room. Both suspects threatened to shoot the 16 year old if he didn’t give him the money, however, no gun was displayed.

After about five minutes, both suspects left the house with nothing.

The 16-year-old fled from the house to a friend’s house.

The burglars were later identified as Anthony Harris, 34, of Philadelphia, PA, and Lebron Willis-Worthy, 18, of Philadelphia, PA.

They were charged with burglary, robbery, and theft.

The investigation is still under investigation and anyone with any information is urged to call the Ewing Police Department at 609-882-1313 and ask for Sgt. Robert Litz at ext. 7595.
