State police have released a composite sketch of a suspect in a Chester County home invasion during which a bankruptcy lawyer was shot and wounded.

Fred P. Barakat, 63, was shot after three men allegedly barged into his Pennsbury Township house just before 6:20 p.m. Sept. 24. He was treated at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. Police said the home invasion was not considered random.

Two of the men were believed to be wearing masks. Barakat described the third as a 6-foot-tall white man in his 30s with short blond hair. All fled in a white or cream-colored passenger car, Trooper Corey Monthei said.

Anyone with information is asked to call state police in Avondale at 610-268-2022. - Mari A. Schaefer
