The 46-year-old reality star and her millionaire boyfriend have houses in California and Holmdel, N.J. E! News sources revealed that the couple flew to New Jersey for the weekend to celebrate the first communion of Audriana, Manzo’s goddaughter. Manzo even tweeted about the occasion a couple of hours before the traumatic event happened.

According to the report from the Holmdel Police Department, when the couple arrived at their home from the celebration, two masked individuals rushed toward them as soon as they entered the front door.

Manzo suffered beatings as she was punched multiple times by one assailant. One of the assailants, meanwhile, struck Cantin with a baseball bat. TMZ reported that the suspect used a baseball bat belonging to Cantin’s son.

After injuring them both, the assailants put zip-ties around Manzo and Cantin’s hands. The burglars left the couple in the foyer as they ransacked the entire house. Both money and jewelry were taken from the three-bedroom home but the amount remains undisclosed.

After the burglars left the scene, Manzo and Cantin managed to go to the kitchen, cut off the zip-ties with a pair of scissors, and called 911. They were immediately taken to the hospital for treatment.

A joint investigation by Holmdel police and the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office was launched shortly thereafter.

Andre Brettler, the couple’s lawyer, released a statement on their behalf saying, “Dina and David are obviously shaken up from the traumatic and violent home invasion and robbery. No one should ever have to go through what they did. They are grateful to law enforcement and the other emergency responders and appreciate everyone’s concern and well-wishes.”
