South Bend, IN (KROC AM News) - Over the past few years, KROC AM News periodically provides details from the Rochester Police Dept. about incidents that are referred to as “home invasions.”

Some can be violent, leaving victims with serious injuries. Many victims also lose property.

But none of these incidents we have covered over the years included video to show just how frightful these crimes can be.

A recent home invasion in South Bend, Indiana is making news because it WAS recorded and is being used on the city police department's Facebook page in hopes of finding the intruders. 

According to the post, one of those in the home was a young boy who apparently was not afraid of the intruders.

Here is the summary from the South Bend PD:

On September 30 around 10:30AM, officers were called to the 500 block of S. Grant in reference to shots fired. When they arrived, they learned there was a home invasion. Four males, all with hoodies on, knocked on the front door. A juvenile occupant opened the door and the four males forced themselves inside. At least three of the four were armed with handguns. The suspects fled the scene and more shots were fired. Luckily, no one was physically injured. This video is extremely disturbing. You can see a little boy hitting one of the armed suspects as he tries to defend his home. It is our job now to defend him.
