Caroline Manzo Speaks Out After Sister Dina’s Brutal Burglary, Wants Justice
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo wants justice to be served after her sister, Dina, was brutally beaten during a home invasion this past weekend.
Even though the two had their issues in the past, Dina's sister Caroline has spoken out in support of her sibling.
"I hope the police get to the bottom of this and whoever is responsible for this gets what's coming to them," Caroline said.
Dina Manzo, 46, and her millionaire boyfriend, David Cantin, were viciously beaten by two burglars upon entering their Holmdel, New Jersey, townhouse on Saturday. The couple was returning home from a celebration for Teresa Giudice's daughter, Audriana's first communion.
The Holmdel police report says the pair arrived home after the festivities on Saturday night and opened their front door to find two masked individuals inside the house. The robbers then rushed towards the two and struck Cantin with a baseball bat several times. Manzo was punched multiple times.

Before the robbers left Dina's home, they tied her and David up before fleeing with cash and jewelry. The two were able to free themselves and call the police. They were taken to the hospital for treatment with both of them suffering facial injuries.
Two days after the incident, Chris Laurita, the 47-year-old brother to Dina and Caroline, also addressed the issue.
"[Dina] is obviously shaken by the whole thing. She's back in California now and seems to be OK," he said. "It's unfortunate what happened. Hopefully they'll get to the bottom of it."
"Dina and David are obviously shaken up from the traumatic and violent home invasion and robbery," the attorney representing the couple said in a statement on Monday. "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."
