Officials confirm at least one dead in Lebanon crash


Lebanon police are trying to track down a man involved in a violent home invasion on Thanksgiving.

Police say the man set off the security alarm when he broke in through the back door of the home on Franklin Road around 11 p.m.

A woman who was home at the time with her children said she woke and saw a man armed with a gun.

According to police, the man held the victim at gunpoint and demanded her wallet before hitting her in the stomach and running off.

The victim sustained minor injuries in the attack.

The suspect is described as a white man who is between 5'10" and 6'0" tall with a slim build. He has a scruffy, dark beard and was wearing a dark jacket or sweatshirt with red lettering on the front.

The Lebanon Police Department is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the identification and arrest of the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Lebanon Police Department or Detective Jeremy Johnson at 615-444-2323 or 615-453-4337.
