Police probe home invasion
Durham police officers are asking for help in finding a group of men who robbed a house on June 15 on Lynn Road near Holloway Street.
Police said one of the victims was outside the house about 10:30 p.m. when he was approached by a group of men allegedly armed with guns. The victim told police he was then forced into the house.
Inside the house other occupants were told to take off their pants and empty their pockets. The suspects took phones and an Xbox game consul from the victims.
Police said there were at least 10 people inside the house when the robbery occurred. Two victims were pistol whipped and taken to the hospital.
Police said that victims heard the suspects say they were at the wrong house during the robbery.
There were three or four suspects involved in the robbery. One suspect was described as a black male, between 5 feet 3 inches to feet 4 inches tall with a goatee. A second suspect was described as a black male approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall with dreads and bushy eyebrows. The suspects possibly left in a blue four-door vehicle.
