Gaston County Police
Press Release


GASTONIA, N.C. - On Sunday July 7, 2019 at approximately 12:15 a.m., the Gaston County Police Department responded to 115 Starlight Drive, Lincolnton, N.C. [Northwest Gaston County], in reference to a possible home invasion.

The victim answered a knock at his front door and was confronted by a suspect brandishing a firearm. The suspect’s ethnicity is unknown due to the fact he was dressed in dark colored clothing and wearing a ski type mask. The suspect is described as a male approximately 6-feet tall and medium build.

The suspect restrained two of the victim’s family members hands behind their backs and then placed them inside the residence. The suspect then rummaged through the victim’s bedroom. At some point the suspect struck the victim in the face and then removed his wallet and stole $200 dollars. The victim was then taken outside and bound to a piece of lawn furniture on the back porch of the residence before the suspect fled on foot.

Gaston County Police processed the scene for evidence and utilized a K9 Unit to attempt to locate the suspect as part of the investigative process. Currently, the Criminal Investigations Unit is continuing this investigation.

If you have any information about this incident, please contact the Gaston County Police Department at 704-866-3300 or CrimeStoppers at 704-861-8000.
