Home invasion in Independence – woman beaten unconscious and robbed

On Thursday at about 8:45 a woman was beaten and robbed in her home in Noralez Extension, Independence Village by two thieves, who got away with approximately $270 in goods and cash.

Yaeanera Rodriguez, 38, was taken to the Independence Village Polyclinic, where doctors who attended to her classified the injuries she sustained as wounding.

Rodriguez told police that the two men first gained entry into her house, then attacked her. She struggled with them, but one of the men beat her in the head with an object until she became unconscious.

The men then ransacked her house, stealing 2 cell phones valued at $75 each; a purple watch valued at $45; a school bag worth $55 and her purse, which contained $20.

When Rodriguez regained consciousness, she called police, who took her to the clinic, where she was treated and later released.

Police conducted investigations which led to a man who they believe was one of the alleged robbers, and are looking for another man.
