EDISON, NJ - Less than 24 hours after the Middlesex County Prosecutor released a statement regarding home invasions targeting Asian-Indians in South Plainfield and Old Bridge, a fourth home invasion occurred in Edison Thursday night.

According to authorities, the robbers have broken into homes four times in less than 11 days. Money, electronics and jewelry were stolen while home owners were restrained.

The robbery reportedly occurred a few miles from Oak Tree Road, also known as Little India, which is in Edison, near South Plainfield, Colonia and Iselin.

A neighbor told a reporter for WABC that the woman who lives there was taking the trash out when three armed men rushed into the home where her children were. They robbed the home, then fled according to myCentralJersey.com.

Apparently, the incident that occurred in Edison was similar to three other robberies in Middlesex County that began on Oct. 20 in Old Bridge, followed the second on Oct. 26 and the third earlier this week in South Plainfield.

Anyone with information is urged to call their local police, or Agent John Selesky of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-3439, or Detective John Marotta of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-3331.

Investigation is ongoing.
