2 aggressive home invasions reported within minutes of each other in southeast Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Four suspects remain on the run after forcing their way into two separate homes overnight.

The first home invasion was reported at an apartment complex on the 2700 block of Arlington Drive just before 4:15 Sunday morning. The group barged into a home and began helping themselves to property inside while fixing their guns on the occupants.

Twenty minutes later, police received a similar call at a home about a half-mile from the first scene. This time, police say two of the suspects knocked on the door and assaulted the homeowner when he answered. During the assault, the other half of the group went into the home and pointed their weapon at the other person inside. Nothing was taken.

Police say the suspect descriptions in both home invasions match, but have not released the descriptions to the public.

Anyone with information should call the Colorado Springs Police Department at 444-7000.
