One of six people robbed at gunpoint during a home invasion in Oswego on Tuesday is expected to speak with investigators Wednesday.

Oswego Police Chief Dwight Baird said Wednesday morning that the female victim has agreed to be interviewed. Up until this point, she had refused.

“She said it didn’t fit into her schedule (to be interviewed) yesterday,” Baird said.

The remaining victims, five men between the ages of 17 and 21, continue to refuse to talk with police.

According to Baird, the early morning home invasion took place in the 300 block of Hemlock Lane in the Ashcroft Place subdivision.

At around 6 a.m., police said four masked men forced their way into the home at gunpoint. After beating two victims, the suspects left with the victims’ cell phones and keys.

The men fled in a 2010 Audi Q7 with Illinois plates reading V701752. It has not been spotted by authorities.

“They could have taken off the plates or something like that,” Baird said.

On Tuesday the men were believed to be headed toward Chicago.

Police have been told that several of the victims moved into the home a couple months ago. Baird said the incident is believed to be isolated, and targeted toward those inside the home.
