South Bend Police say two home invasion suspects made it rather easy for officers to catch them.

That’s because 20-year-old Robert Baker and 20-year-old Delron Patterson reportedly left their IDs at the home they reportedly tried to rob.

It happened last Monday at a home on Illinois Street. Police say the two had their guns drawn and started shooting inside the home. However, a woman returned fire and the two fled.

An ID card was found near a vehicle outside of the home that said “Robert Baker”. The man who owned the ID was at a local hospital with a gunshot wound.

Another wallet with an ID belonging to a “Delron Patterson” was reportedly found in the rear of the home.

Both Baker and Patterson are charged with attempted armed robbery.

Well educated South Bend citizens….. The mayor must be proud!

The scary part is these people vote!

I doubt that these two Rhodes scholars have ever voted for anything, unless there was a twerking competition at Silver beach. Our mayor is too concerned with his own future to worry about this city and what it is becoming.
