We call them home invasions but the legal terminology is “Aggravated burglary”. Whatever the name, it is a frightening experience for those families that have had to endure one; and a Santa Elena family just had the horrific experience last night, Thursday July 18. According to police reports, the cops were alerted to a robbery in progress on the Western Highway in Santa Elena Town. Police responded where they met Hugh Tillett who reported that at 8:25pm, while he and his common law wife were at their house in the Hot Point Area, two masked men, one with a knife and the other with a handgun, kicked open their bedroom door demanding money. Fearing for their lives they handed over $1,500.00 in different denomination and 2 cell phones. Hugh was then reportedly hit with the firearm on his head. The armed men then left. Police investigation continues.
