LYNDHURST - Three suspects in a home invasion and kidnapping are still on the run, and police hope a sketch of one of them will bring in new tips.
A 62-year-old jewelry store owner managed to get free following the kidnapping in Lyndhurst.
Lyndhurst Police Chief James O'Connor says the three suspects may have followed and tracked the family for days or weeks, learning their habits and when they got home.
Investigators say three robbers barged into the man's home just after 9 p.m. Wednesday. The suspects then kidnapped him and tied up his wife.
The wife was able to free herself and contact a relative, who then called 911. Police say when they were alerted the plan fell apart.
The couple's adult son was home at the time, but was unharmed.
Police believe the suspects planned to take the man to his jewelry store in Union City to rob it. The husband was able to get away, but it is unclear at this time if he escaped or was let go.
The man is recovering from minor injuries.
Two of the suspects were wearing masks during the attack and no identifying information on them has been released.
Police say the thieves made away with thousands of dollars in high-end watches from the home.
All three attackers are still at large.
