Henderson Police are investigating a robbery on Clay Street earlier in the week to see if it is connected to a home invasion where a 33 year old man was shot in the leg.

According to the release, an adult female resident in the 800 block of Clay Street filed the report with police on Thursday, but stated the robbery occurred 2:00 Tuesday afternoon when two black males came into her home brandishing handguns, made threats and demanded money. The woman told police she gave them money and the two men then fled from the residence. Authorities say the female victim said she didn’t report the incident until Thursday because she was scared.

At this time, Henderson Police say detectives are looking into the possibility of this crime being connected to a robbery later that night around Midnight at Village Brook Drive when two unknown black males entered a residence armed with handguns and demanded money from 33 year old Joshua Freeland and a visitor, 33 year old Jacob Fridy of Clarksville, TN. After stealing items from both men, the subjects shot Freeland in his right leg and fled the scene.
Freeland was reportedly transported to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Anyone with information on these crimes is asked to contact the Henderson Police Department (270) 831-1295 or Henderson Crime Stoppers at (270) 831-1111.
