Family fights off suspects during home invasion

A family in South Beloit fights off suspects who broke into their home. 

South Beloit Police say around 2 a.m a female friend of a father and his two teenagers stopped by their house. The female said she had another female friend in her car, who the father said was allowed inside.

Authorities say when the female left the house, three masked men entered the house, one armed with a knife. 

As the father was being restrained, he managed to break free and start fighting with the suspects. The father’s two teenagers also started fighting the suspects at this time. 

The father was able to grab the knife of one of the suspects and stab them with it. At this time, the teenagers left the house. 

The two women and the three masked men all left the house in a dark colored vehicle. 

The teenagers later returned to the house. The father was treated for minor injuries, but the teenagers were OK. 

The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office is assisting the South Beloit Police Department in this investigation, which is on-going.
