EUSTIS, Florida — A home invasion Monday night is under investigation, according to Eustis Police Officer J. Allred.
EPD responded to a complaint of multiple gunshots in the area of Tall Pines Villas, 1000 Wall Street around 11:30 p.m. Monday. Officers were flagged down in the area of Pine Avenue, according to a press release. The victims told police two black males, over 6 feet tall and weighing more than 200 pounds entered their home and demanded a female victim come with them.
The suspects escorted her outside, but then allowed her to return to the home, Allred said. They were both wearing black hoodies and black neck gaiters; one is described as light-skinned with a bald head, and the second man had darker skin. Both men have a muscular build, the victim told police.
If you have information on this home invasion, call EPD Detective Carpenter at 352-357-4121.
