The family of a man injured earlier this month in a home invasion has offered a $2,000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible.

The incident occurred at Mission Viejo Apartments at approximately 1:30 AM on February 12th. Two white females knocked at the victim’s door asking for someone by name. When the victim, Rami Jawabreh, answered the door, he was repeatedly struck in the head with a handgun by a masked male who appeared from one side of the apartment door. A second male entered the apartment during the assault and pointed a handgun at Jawabreh’s female companion.

All four fled on foot following the brief assault and Jawabreh was taken by the female companion to the hospital for treatment. No reason for the assault has been determined and nothing was taken from the apartment.

The investigation to this point has provided substantial corroborating information. Sheriff Williams said, “Based on what we have now, this is an extremely disturbing case. There is no apparent motive for what was a vicious attack.”

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office is investigating and has asked that anyone with information contact Det. Randy Chapman at 421-6344.
