Witnesses at the Verde Meadows Apartments at 1470 S. Chelton Road told police that three men forced their way inside a couple's apartment and ransacked it.

Apparently a husband and wife were home when the three strangers knocked on their door. After the husband answered, the men forced their way inside. Two of them had guns. The men tore apart the apartment, demanding money, and searching for valuables.

Meanwhile, the woman was forced at gunpoint down into the parking lot where one of the crooks tried to steal a car belonging to the victims.

Police say after they received reports of the crime, they search the area, but could not find the suspects. No serious injuries were reported by the victims.

If you know anything about this home invasion, call Crime Stoppers in Colorado Springs at 634-STOP. Your anonymous tip could earn you a cash reward.

    There was a story very similar to this one yesterday. Obviously, it is not good to live at Verde Meadows Apartments. And it really sounds like the same three guys. This story is clearly not the same as on the one published yesterday, so probably the same three guys. Again, it seems they got away with nothing and there are no descriptions. Another questionable report to the police.
