The search continues for a masked man who broke into a home early Saturday morning in Chester County and terrorized a woman into giving him her ATM card.

An ATM camera caught the masked suspect making a withdrawal with the victim's stolen debit card.

Detectives say about a quarter of a mile away on Crestline Road, the suspect had broken into a home in Tredyffrin Township and told the homeowner to "be quiet and you won't be hurt."

After binding the victim with duct tape, police say the suspect ransacked the home for valuables, and even displayed a stun gun like weapon to get the victim's ATM pin number.

He made off with her jewelry, car and ATM card.

The Tredyffrin Township Police Department has sent a photo of the mask the suspect was wearing.



Many residents we spoke with, some didn't want to go on camera, say they're stunned by the violent home invasion.

"It's alarming, and we have to keep our eyes open to make sure we're a little more precautious," resident Michael Rogers said.

The victim was able to call 911 after the suspect left.

The suspect dumped the stolen car at a nearby train station.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
