There are few things on television anymore that force us to turn from the screen, but this footage of an incredibly horrific and violent home invasion that was on the news is very difficult to sit through without getting emotional.
A nanny cam caught every second of a traumatic home invasion that took place in Millburn, New Jersey, Friday morning. The culprit proceeded to punch and kick the mother of two while her 3-year-old daughter curled up terrified at the couch, able to see everything. The woman screamed at first, and then decided it was best to keep silent and take the abuse, for the sake of her daughter.
“I knew that if I started screaming, she would too, and I was afraid that she would get hurt,” the woman told News 12. “I took it. I didn’t cry the entire time.”
The woman and her husband say they want people to see the video, hoping that someone will come forward and identify the man who abused her. She ended up with a concussion from the attack as well as several stitches inside her mouth.
The man is described as a 5’11”, 210-pound black male with a "light salt and pepper beard." Anyone with information on this man is asked to contact Lt. Keith Laverty with the Millburn police at 973-564-7001. There is a $5,000 reward available for any information that leads to his capture.
