North Augusta officers seek home invasion suspects

NORTH AUGUSTA, SC (WFXG) -

North Augusta officers are looking for two men who forced their way into a home and assaulted two people. 

Officers were called to 168 Atomic Rd. around 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Lt. Tim Thornton said. The victims, a man and a woman, said two men armed with guns knocked on the door, forced their way in and assaulted them. 

One man forced the woman into the bedroom and sexually assaulted her, according to an incident report. The other man stayed in the living room with the male victim and kept asking where the money was and kicking and beating him. 

The man in the living room started putting items, including laptops, a tablet and an Xbox, in a suitcase. When police arrived, the men fled on foot and left the suitcase in the backyard. 

The men were seen running through the woods toward Breckenridge Villas, according to the incident. The bloodhound tracking team was called to the area.

The female victim was transported to the hospital, Thornton said. 

One of the men was described as a black male, about 6'2", wearing a doo rag, a dark shirt and camouflage pants, according to the report. He had a chipped tooth, a tattoo on his left forearm and a goatee. 

The other man was described as a black man about 6'1", wearing a white shirt tied around his head, according to the report.
