Sunday home invasion under investigation

Police are investigating a Woodward Avenue home invasion that occurred early Sunday.

According to a police report, a 52-year-old woman was sleeping on a couch of the residence in the 2200 block of Woodward Avenue around 4:30 a.m. when she heard someone say “Richmond County” and then kick in the front door.

Four black men dressed in all black with masks and gloves told the woman to go to the back of the house with another female resident and six children between the ages of 2 and 11.

The victims told police the men were armed with handguns.

After the home invasion, the residents discovered the intruders had taken several electronic components, cellphones, a purse, cash, tennis shoes and two sets of car keys.
