An Oswego woman was robbed late Friday night as she entered her home in the Southbury subdivision.

According to Oswego Police spokeswoman Cathy Nevara, the woman had just left her car and was walking to the front door of her home in the 200 block of Willington Way when she was pushed by two men and robbed of her purse. The value and contents of the purse were valued at about $6,000, police said.

The woman described one of the two men as about six feet tall. He was wearing a grey hoodie, red mask and hat. The other man was only described as shorter than the first.

Nevara said the suspects then ran toward their car dark-colored SUV or mini-van that was parked on Mystic Court and fled south down Southbury Boulevard.

A police K9 unit was brought in to help search the area, but yielded no results, Nevara said.

Police also canvased the area last night, and will be back out on Saturday to talk with neighbors, Nevara said.

The incident is similar to an attempted robbery that occurred at the same home in November. Nevara could not say whether the two incidents are directly related; however police did say that they believe the incidents are limited to the home. 

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Oswego Police at (630) 551-7300.
