Indiana police are on the search for a group of at least four house intruders, who raided one Tamika Reid’s household on the 30th of September. In a Facebook post from the South-Bend Police Department, it was revealed that officers learned of the incident while responding to reports of firearms going off in the distance.
Surveillance footage show four males, three of whom carried guns, barging into Reid’s abode after a child answered the door, they presumably knocked before exercising their scheme.
Reid told several news outlets that the intruders swiftly went into the living room, where she was ironing some clothes whilst her two children stood by the side of the sofa, according to Daily Mail.
Several sources claim that the four repeatedly fired shots during their time in the kitchen.

The intruders dragged Reid and her 5-year-old child towards another room, aiming their guns on the formers. The child was reported to defend his mother, hurling various toys at them and hitting and tackling some members of the group.
“I’m just, my whole thing was my hero right here. He was trying to hit the guys. My thing was I need to get him out of the house before they do something to my son,” Reid said.
Before authorities could arrive, the intruders immediately left — KMOV reports that no possessions were stolen, and the local police said that no injuries were suffered by Reid and her children.
Below is a transcript of the post by Indiana Express, inquiring about the whereabouts of the suspects: “PLEASE SHARE: We need your help identifying these individuals responsible for a home invasion.
On September 30 around 10:30AM, officers were called to the 500 block of S. Grant in reference to shots fired. When they arrived, they learned there was a home invasion.

Four males, all with hoodies on, knocked on the front door. A juvenile occupant opened the door and the four males forced themselves inside. At least three of the four were armed with handguns. The suspects fled the scene and more shots were fired. Luckily, no one was physically injured.
This video is extremely disturbing. You can see a little boy hitting one of the armed suspects as he tries to defend his home. It is our job now to defend him.
If you have any information on who these men are, please call Michiana Crime Stoppers at 574-288-STOP or 800-342-STOP. You can also call our South Bend Police Department Investigative Bureau at 574-235-9263.”
