Protecting Your Family from a Violent Home Invasion - Modern Wellness Guide
According to home security expert Jordan Frankel, perhaps better known as the Security Sensei, burglars typically strike homes that appear unoccupied to avoid confrontation.
“Burglars target homeowners while [they are] at work, shopping, etc.,” explains Frankel. “The criminal will enter forcibly, through a door or possibly a window. The intruders must ransack the home to find valuables and cash. This takes time, creating attention, especially if the alarm system is blaring away.”
A home invasion involves illegally entering a private, occupied dwelling to commit a crime, using fear, intimidation and the element of surprise. The culprits want to be in and out in minutes, sometimes pulling a gun on the family pet or even a child.
“Home invaders are brazen, and will stop at nothing to complete heinous crimes,” warns Frankel. “They have no regard for human life. Injuring or murdering a family is simply a means to an evil end. They'll case a home for weeks, learning the family’s patterns and habits. Usually they show up in teams of two to five individuals, forcibly entering through multiple doors simultaneously.”
