Two accused in violent home invasion headed for trial

Home invasion suspects face trial

Two men accused in a violent home invasion are headed to trial.

Ramon Clark and Steven Tomino's charges were held for court during the preliminary hearing Tuesday.

Geraldine Petry, one of the men's three victims, testified Tuesday.

Geraldine and James Petry along with a cousin were bound, taped and trapped inside their Washington Township home April 30th, Petry told 69 News back in June. 

Police say two men posed as home-buyers the day before the attack and then returned to raid the Delaware Road home.

When they returned, the Petry's sensed danger and called police.  

"Based on my time with them the night before and their concerns I actually drove out to the house and that's when I was able to intercept the home invasion," Officer Scott Miller said.

Miller arrived, he said and heard screams for help before the two men took off running.

Miller chased after them and called for backup, he said.

Tomino was caught after a car chase.  Clark later turned himself in.

The two will be arraigned by a video conference on October 16.
