GOSHEN TOWNSHIP — Goshen Township police arrested four men in connection with a July 13 assault and robbery in a home on Belfast Road.
A key clue: a cup of ice left at the scene.
On July 13, a woman came home to find four men stealing items out of her detached garage. The suspects assaulted her, knocked her unconscious and stole her cell phone before fleeing in a pickup truck, police said. She went to a neighbor’s house to call 911 and was later treated for her injuries.
Investigators recovered an unlabeled cup of ice left at the scene by the suspects. A detective recognized the type of ice from a nearby gas station. After reviewing gas station security footage, police were able to track down the suspects.
