This Day in History: 1955-02-14
Police were puzzling over a daylight Robbert on First Street involving two young white men. Mrs. Eva Paulet, described in the newspaper account as “middle-aged” answered the door to two men who forced their way into her house. They forced her into the shower where they bound and gagged her with adhesive tape. They proceeded to search the house for five to ten minutes and then left. Mrs. Paulet was able to free herself and phone a neighbor who summoned the police. Strangely nothing was missing. She assumes they were searching for cash. She had none in the house. Mrs. Goldberg, to whom she appealed when she got away was herself the victim of a robbery on January 2nd.
