LYNDHURST, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say three people were injured when a man broke into their home and demanded money.

Lyndhurst police tell The Record that 24-year-old Evanalain Sieberkrob-Hershman of Kearny faces several charges, including assault and burglary. They say he was found in a parking lot shortly after he allegedly fled from the home.

Authorities say the man entered the home around 4:45 p.m. through an unlocked rear door and encountered a 74-year-old woman who lives at the residence. He then allegedly grabbed her and demanded money.

The woman’s 74-year-old husband entered the kitchen and tried to intervene, but the intruder allegedly struck him in the head. A 50-year-old relative who also lives in the home heard the woman scream and also tried to intervene, but was pushed away by the man before he ran off empty-handed.

The husband was treated at a hospital for head and face injuries, while the two other victims were treated at the scene.

Bail was set at $420,000 cash for Sieberkrob-Hershman, and it was not known Saturday if he had retained an attorney.
